The Exchange is a virtual conference for sharing professional library ideas and experiences. We're a collaboration between ALA's ALCTS, LITA, and LLAMA divisions. The Exchange: An ALCTS/LITA/LLAMA Collaboration brings together experiences, ideas, expertise and individuals from the three ALA divisions. The Exchange is an innovative, interactive, virtual forum, modeled after the previous ALCTS Exchange.
This year, our theme is "Building the Future Together." We welcome ideas and presentations about leadership, change management, continuity, sustainability, and collaborations. The Exchange will examine the topic in relation to collections, leadership, technology, innovation, sustainability, and collaborations. Participants from diverse areas of librarianship will find the three days of presentations, panels, and activities both thought-provoking and highly relevant to their current and future career paths. The Exchange will engage a wide-range of presenters and participants, facilitating enriching conversations and learning opportunities. Everyone, members and non-members alike, are encouraged to register and bring their questions, experiences, and perspectives to the events.
When you attend, you get live presentations and access to our content for a year. We hope you'll use this opportunity to discuss, connect, and create a thriving professional community.
