The purpose and objective of this session will be to demonstrate how to collaborate, organize, and execute a virtual librarian conference. Librarians will use GSuite for Education tools, video-conferencing programs, and creative design applications to successfully create a template for future virtual conferences and workshops.
An overview of our successes, failures, and evaluation tools will be presented as well as an in-depth explanation of the process of creating a virtual conference for librarians. Participants will engage in a modeled exercise on how to select conference theme, topics, collect proposals, create conference schedules, use virtual conference tools for speaking events, design programs to advertise, and marketing strategies to promote events at a local, state, or national level. Time expected: 60 minutes.
