A Sequence of Convenings Towards the BIG Collection
A Sequence of Convenings Towards the BIG Collection
Big Ten Academic Alliance - Library
Mon, March 08, 2021 — Mon, December 13, 2021
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!


Theme: Making the BIG Collection the “lead idea,” the center of gravity, to align resources and activities across Big Ten Academic Alliance library initiatives


Form: A sequence of monthly keynote events, conversations, and workshops 


Description: All staff from across Big Ten Academic Alliance libraries are warmly invited to this “Sequence of Convenings,” which will focus on generating broad community engagement with the vision, themes, and practical direction for the BIG Collection. The program will include large plenary sessions about the strategic CONCEPTS of the BIG Collection, which will alternate with focused conversations about how we re-imagine our WORK as a community to collectively design and build the future we want to see.


This virtual series re-imagines the traditional BTAA annual library conference into a continuous series of 90-minute sessions that will build throughout the course of 2021. We openly invite and encourage all staff from across our libraries to attend, participate, and contribute. There is no cost for these events, though registration is required. You may select multiple events below to register for, and return at any time to edit your choices. 


The primary content of the plenary sessions will be recorded and made available online, as will selected content from the community conversations. Further information will be added to each session as it becomes available.
