OLA Super Conference 2016
January 27 to 30, 2016
The 2016 theme is Library Lab: The Idea Incubator
New ideas and theories are everywhere. In the right conditions, they percolate, bubble, germinate, coalesce and congeal. They get tested, shaped, molded and evaluated until they flourish into existence.
This year's theme explores the unique position of libraries to harness creative energy and incubate ideas. Our communities are brimming with fresh ideas, entrepreneurial start-ups, and experimental partnerships. Libraries serve as environments that catalyze exploration, breed experimentation and encourage curiosity.
Submit your proposal here. The submission deadline is Tue May 19 2015
