This year, our theme is The Global Library. We have a number of great sessions planned, with topics including international copyright, library jargon, universal design, and extended reality!

The purpose of INTERSECT is to facilitate a culture of co-learning among librarians and other interested professionals in the region by bringing people together to network and share ideas in an interactive, engaging, informal setting where participants determine the content.

Activities, including workshops and tours, will be held after lunch time. 

Early Bird Registration price is $35, so register now! After the early bird period ends, registration will go up to $45.
