UNYOC provides an informative and fun chapter meeting with a good mix of programming and networking. This year’s theme is “Shake it Up” in homage to Syracuse, the “Salt City.” The conference program includes three dynamic speakers who will discuss point-of-care medical apps, explore the changing library landscape, and review essential editing and proofreading skills in an interactive workshop. The Continuing Education opportunity at this year’s meeting centers on instructional design. Members present papers, lightning talks, and posters to showcase projects happening in our member libraries. There are also lots of opportunities to win one of our many themed baskets to support chapter scholarships and mingle with the amazing line-up of vendors. More details are available on our website by following the links below.
UNYOC Members receive a $50 reduction in the registration rate, so please join or renew your membership before registering for the conference.
