Greetings from the WPWVC-ACRL Program Committee,
The WPWVC-ACRL Program Committee with the approval of the WPWVC-ACRL Board have determined that the Spring 2020 Conference will no longer be held as an in person event. The Committee weighed several options for the conference and determined that the best option is to hold the conference as a series of webinars over the summer of 2020.
We would like to announce that the first webinar will stream live on June 12, 2020 at 10:00 am.
Session Title: The Power of Presence: Uncovering the Unasked Questions
Main Speaker: Jeffrey Knapp, Penn State University
Speaker Bio: Jeff is the Larry & Ellen Foster Librarian for Communications at Penn State, serving the Bellisario College of Communications, the largest accredited mass communications program in the United States. In addition to library and information science, his academic background includes international politics and history, with professional experience in marketing communications. Jeff believes it is his professional responsibility to be interested in everything. His research interests involve the role of academic librarianship and potential futures for the profession in an ever-changing information environment.
