*Please note that in order to avoid a conflict with the ARL Fall Forum, the Conference Planning Committee recommended changing the date from October 8 to October 7.
Coordinates on how to join the sessions will be distributed to conference participants a day prior to the sessions. CRKN will be using Zoom to facilitate all of the conference sessions.
Currently, a preliminary program for the conference is available on our website. A full program with finalized details will be available in mid-September.
In addition to business sessions, this year’s conference will include presentations on the theme “Access in Transition” from a wide variety of members and stakeholders on topics ranging from institutional negotiation strategies to colonial frameworks in GLAM organizations. We are also planning a number of exciting virtual social events and activities, including the annual Ron MacDonald Distinguished Service Award Ceremony.
Recognizing budgetary challenges and a widespread desire to convene together, the CRKN Board of Directors is pleased to waive registration fees for this year’s conference. As always, conference sessions will include simultaneous interpretation in English and French.
CRKN looks forward to welcoming you to this year’s virtual conference! For more information or for registration assistance, please visit our website or contact:
