Sponsors & Exhibitors

Join the OLA in bringing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to Libraries

When: April 20-April 23, 2021

Location: Virtual

The conference theme is Equity, Diversity, Inclusion. Libraries play a vital role in providing a space of equitable representation. Our libraries have been working hard to respond to their community’s needs in new and innovative ways. The conference provides an opportunity for sharing those ideas and collaborating in this important ongoing work.

This conference is made possible by the generosity of our sponsors and exhibitors.

The registration deadline for exhibitors and sponsors is March 5, 2021.
