CORE Virtual Forum

California Libraries Learn (CALL) will support a limited number of seats in ALA’s Core Virtual Forum on November 18 and 20. (The program will take place on non-consecutive days to provide more flexibility for attendees and minimize Zoom fatigue.) Themed “Intention and Serendipity: Exploration of Ideas through Purposeful and Chance Connections,” the Core Virtual Forum 2020 will feature sessions that explore the ways present-day challenges are driving many library leaders to reassess priorities.

 

Core Virtual Forum is an ideal place to interact with fellow library workers who are interested in:

 

  • library technology,
  • leadership,
  • collections,
  • preservation,
  • assessment, and
  • metadata.

What is Core? Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures is a new division of the American Library Association, made of the former Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA), Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), and the Library Information Technology Association (LITA). Core’s mission is to cultivate and amplify the collective expertise of library workers in the core functions of collections, technology, and management through community building, advocacy, and learning.
