Several UK Libraries faculty participated in the SLA Annual Conference in San Diego last month. The conference’s theme, Connect, Collaborate & Strategize, resonated throughout the meeting, beginning with Keynote Speaker Mike Walsh who inspired librarians to be more visionary to the closing panel of SLA leaders who participated in a candid discussion of critical challenges to librarians and information professionals. UK librarians participated in cabinet meetings and various unit board meetings, in addition to their varied specific conference roles.
