Panel sessions bring together the perspectives of two to four presenters into a cohesive conversation of innovative ideas, current topics, and salient issues regarding the evolving and transformative nature of academic and research libraries. Lasting one hour (including time for Q&A), these sessions are intended to engage audience members in thinking about or participating in discussions surrounding the multiple perspectives presented and their potential impact on current and future professional practice. Sessions will be selected based on their relevance to academic libraries and librarianship; clarity of purpose and intended outcomes for the audience; and the overall contribution to the conference as a mechanism for moving the profession forward.
