  • IACRL Pre-Conference survey closes on Tuesday, March 18
  • The public services pre-conference session will take place from 2:30-3:30 on March 20.


  • It was discussed whether to include survey data on the public site. Content can be added periodically as it is acquired and the structure can be adjusted as needed. The possibility of developing a best practices list at a later date from the information gathered, was also discussed.
  • The four groups leading discussion at the pre-conference shared what they plan on talking about. Andrew will introduce everyone at the beginning rather than between topics, then wrap up afterward. It was also discussed whether to remain as one large group or break into smaller ones, it was decided that smaller groups would take too long.
  • For the security concerns forum, Sarah McHone-Chase has confirmed for June 16th. Kent Munsterman instead of Chief Mullin will present the active shooter training. Preferred topics for Tomas Lipinksi were also discussed, the first two topics were the favorites.
