Update: In light of circumstances in the state, and feedback from membership, the board and conference committee have decided to transition the 2022 conference to fully virtual. We hope that this will increase the accessibility of the conference for all members.
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?
