Why is there a need for a new conference, you ask?
- Science librarianship is changing. We need opportunities for professional development and networking that change with us. Help us create these for each other.
- We want to address the many aspects of STEM librarianship, and will focus on STEM subjects from a librarianship perspective
- Our STEM librarian focus will allow us to connect with a dedicated community of peers, combining structured professional development opportunities with collegiality and the energy of an unconference.
- Did we mention that it’s free?
Why a collaborative?
After a long and rigorous decision-making process, we decided on this name because we believe it represents the participatory and non-hierarchical principles we are aiming to center with this conference. This conference will be for everyone, no matter your background, rank, institution, or discipline. If you have an interest in STEM librarianship, we want this conference to be for you, and that is what came to our head when we heard the name STEM Librarians Collaborative.
