Empowering Access and Ensuring Accessibility: Connecting People to Information and Collections

ALCTS 2018 Midwinter Symposium

Friday, February 9, 2018, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  |  event code: ALC1  |   Register 2018 ALA Midwinter Meeting

Connecting people to information is a fundamental tenet of librarianship. In the rapidly evolving information environment, librarians strive to enhance access and increase accessibility for all populations. These concepts are particularly important for those working in collections and technical services, where responsibility for identifying, selecting, acquiring, organizing, managing, digitizing, and preserving recorded knowledge resides. This symposium explores the landscape and horizon of collections and technical services work as it contributes to access and broad accessibility to stimulate knowledge creation, to foster innovation, and to empower libraries to have a transformative role in society.
