About the Innovation Conversations: Innovation Conversations give you the chance to hear from and speak with library leaders from all library types and from all over the English speaking library world. Each month you can interact with an award-winning or recognized leader in our field.
The first part of the online meeting will feature a short presentation on the topic that brought this library leader to our attention. The second part is a live interview, covering questions you’ve sent to us in advance and some we’ve thought of. The third part will field your questions, a live Q&A, in the webinar. Ask about the challenges, the key details, and whatever else you would like to learn.
Together, we'll learn more about successful projects and the people behind them than a brief magazine article might include. We're going beyond the blog post, bringing you the chance to ask the questions you want answered to evaluate, adapt, or implement new ideas for your library. Join us for SWON's new Innovation Conversations!
