Summer @ NCLA

It’s been awhile since NCLA, but I wanted to make sure you all got to read one more NCLA recap post! NCLA 2019 was my first NCLA and it was memorable! I was lucky to present twice and do a poster during this conference, so most of my time was spent preparing myself!  On Thursday,... more

Having mostly attended archives conferences, I enjoyed the opportunity to cross paths with a group of library workers from... more

Molly at NCLA 2019

Attending the NCLA 2019 Biennial Conference, along with a host of ZSR colleagues plus hundreds of library staff from across the state and region, makes for a fun, insightful three days. This year’s conference is the best NCLA I’ve attended to date. As with any conference, there are sessions affirming what you know, sessions generating... more
