Sparking User Engagement with Collections and Conversations

September 21, 2023

3:00 PM Eastern

Presented by:

Courtney Montgomery: Outreach Lead, Public Services-Mount Royal University Library, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Event Description:

How do we engage users with parts of the collection that may not be considered popular? How do we justify preserving archival items that may be seen as irrelevant or even problematic?  ‘Collections and Conversations’ – a physical exhibit combined with a series of engaging speakers – asked audiences to engage with, question, challenge, and explore a curated selection of materials and to assist in the work of interrogating identity, diversity, and representation. Outreach Lead, Courtney Montgomery, will discuss the development of this unique project and provide ideas on how libraries can increase engagement through meaningful conversations around their existing collections.  Participants will learn ways to re-imagine their own library's collections and how to engage users with that material in new and unique ways. They will come away with ideas to reframe how materials are presented and that it can transform and inspire how they connect with their users.

This webinar will be recorded and the recording will be made available to all paid registrants.

Registration Fee: $35.00

Registration deadline: Wednesday, September 20th
