About the Conference

We’ve been listening! A comment we’ve heard often is that many presentations at conferences seem to be by and for librarians from larger libraries. Well, Big Talk From Small Libraries is different.

This free one-day online conference is tailored for staff from small libraries – the smaller the better!

Each of our speakers is from a library serving fewer than 10,000 people, or is directly partnered with a small library and co-presenting with the library.

Topics range from technology to programming to new roles for the library. This event is a great opportunity to learn about the innovative things your colleagues are doing in their small libraries.

Everyone is welcome to register and attend, regardless of how big or small your library. But, if your library serves a few hundred to a few thousand people, this is the day for you!

Big Talk From Small Libraries is broadcast online using the GoTo Webinar online meeting service. GoTo Webinar works on Windows, Mac, Google Chrome OS, Linux, iOS and Android devices. Please see the NLC Online Sessions webpage for detailed information about GoTo Webinar, including system requirements and firewall configuration. NOTE: GoTo Webinar login instructions are e-mailed to registered attendees the day before the conference.

Recordings: Unless otherwise noted, sessions are recorded and posted to the Previous Conferences page as soon as possible after the event. You do not need to register for the conference to access the recordings.

This conference is organized and hosted by Christa Porter of the Nebraska Library Commission and is sponsored by the Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) and the Nebraska Library Commission.

Big Talk From Small Libraries was inspired by the Iowa Small Libraries Online Conference, and our event wouldn’t exist without their advice and encouragement.
