Annual Conference 2022

MiALA Annual Conference 2022: Engaging the Landscape


May 17 & 18, 2022
Haworth Hotel and Conference Center at Hope College
Holland, Michigan

Events of the last two years have produced many challenges and changes in Academic Libraries—in the ways we engage with our patrons, our campuses, our spaces, our technologies, and our work lives. Michigan Academic Libraries Association invites you to consider the evolving ways that library professionals are Engaging The Landscape of their current environments. What has changed? What remains the same? Where should our focus be? What are the ways that we are actively engaging to create the Academic Library of the future? How are we doing so in more mindful ways? 
The MiALA board and conference committee are planning for an in-person gathering in Holland, Michigan, but with opportunities for virtual attendance for those who are unable to travel. We acknowledge the continued shifting of conditions in Michigan and will adjust conference plans if necessary for the health and safety of all attendees.
