SOAR with Libraries: Sharing Our Amazing Resources

When: September 28–October 2, 2020
Where: Now online!

 The health of our members and communities is ARSL’s top priority. While we missed seeing everyone in Wichita, we were excited for this opportunity to reach library professionals who would not have been able to travel this year, as well as those who have never been able to attend an ARSL conference. We are also excited to announce that next year’s 2021 ARSL Annual Conference will be held in beautiful Reno/Sparks, NV, October 19-23! We look forward to seeing you all in person next fall.

Conference Platform

The 2020 ARSL Conference will be held online using the award-winning event platform Whova! Forming new connections is one of the best parts of an ARSL conference, and we wanted to choose a conference platform that makes it easy to network, collaborate, and socialize. Whova also features both a desktop browser version and a mobile app, so you can access the conference no matter where you're working! The platform features:

  • Live programs – Participate in sessions and keynotes, all of which will be live
  • Program recordings – Get access to all session and keynote recordings through December 31, 2020
  • Community bulletin board  Engage in active conversations with colleagues
  • Meetups  Attend a virtual social meetup or schedule your own
  • Networking – Exchange business cards, search the attendee database, and send messages
  • Exhibitors – Discover new vendors, interact with them in live streams and chats, win raffle prizes, and leave with coupons and giveaways
  • Agenda – Easily search and filter sessions to build your own conference agenda
  • Desktop & mobile apps – Participate at home, at work, or on the go
