Keynote Address: Advocacy in Libraries, Libraries in Advocacy

Jennie Rose Halperin, Director of Library Futures

Consortia play a crucial role in the future of library advocacy. But what does it mean to raise a collective voice as both a coalition and a group of individual institutions? Join Jennie Rose Halperin as she discusses the role of consortia in library advocacy and explore what the future of community-centered, effective action could look like in both physical and digital library spaces in order to promote equity and intellectual freedom for our communities and beyond.
