Library 2.0 Virtual Conferences
The San José State University School of Information is currently making plans for the Library 2.021 mini-conference series to be held in March, June and October, with the March conference bringing the long-running bilingual (Spanish and English) Seguimos Creando Enlaces (Creating Connections) conference online.
“This event fosters community connections and cultural diversity in public, academic and special libraries,” said Steve Hargadon, who co-founded the Library 2.0 Worldwide Virtual Conference series with Dr. Sandra Hirsh in 2011 as a way to facilitate topical discussions among information professionals worldwide. “In past years the event has welcomed library workers from both sides of the California-Mexico border to share best practices and work towards more inclusive library spaces for all.”
