Mid-Winter Unsymposium


When: Friday, January 12, 2018, 1 pm – 4:30 pm
Where: Jim Dan Hill Library, University of Wisconsin-Superior
Cost: Only your time!
Registration: Check back soon!

Join us for the 6th Annual Lake Superior Libraries Symposium Mid-Winter Unsymposium, where you determine the conversation.

Sometimes you need to take a break from the average conference. You’ve seen all the PowerPoint slides and the session topics are as stale as the coffee. Often, the informal conversations that pop up along the sidelines of the conference are the best part.

 At the LSLS Unsymposium, the sidelines are the conference. Topics are determined in a bottom-up, democratic manner, rather than being handed down from on high. Everyone wants to talk about metadata schemas? Done. You’re the only one who wants to talk about the Christmas Collection? Too bad.

 You’ll come away from the Unsymposium invigorated by lively discussions and ready to take that excitement back to your library.

  1. The format was great and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and brainstorming with librarians from around the northeast part of the state, I just wish it would have been a little more relevant to high school libraries.

    • Thanks for your feedback, Carrie! We’d love to see more high school librarians at the 2016 Unsymposium proposing topics that are relevant to K-12 libraries. If you are planning on attending the upcoming Unsymposium, be sure to suggest some topics on your registration form!

  2. My diminished memory span is getting in the way of remembering the various group topics. Would you be able to please list the 8 small group topics?
    Thank you!
