We will meet over Zoom's Breakout Rooms, and there will be 3 separate sessions, each 20 minutes long.  You can choose which of the breakout sessions you'd like to attend.

Table Talk 1: "Where Do Ideas Come From?” - a discussion on how to produce ideas for exhibitions and displays

Table Talk 2:  Rendering remote access to collections - a discussion on digitization, digital preservation, digital exhibits, blogs, and other methods of granting patrons access to library materials

Table Talk 3: Stacks management and storage solutions - a discussion on how your library manages limited storage, making the case for increased space or compactor shelving units, etc.
