2017 TRY+ LIBRARY STAFF CONFERENCE
S.R. Ranaganathan’s fifth law of library science, “The Library is a Growing Organism,” offers a compelling metaphor. TRY+ 2017 will explore how academic libraries have nurtured connections with communities by cultivating services, collections and spaces. Envisioning the library as an ecosystem allows us to learn from natural models in order to foster sustainable networks in support of knowledge creation. Cultivating connections helps libraries transplant old models and systems into new information environments, allowing the creation of fertile ecologies of learning.
About the Conference
The thirteenth annual TRY+ (Toronto, Ryerson, York, OCAD) Library Staff Conference will take place on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto. This free, one-day conference provides an opportunity for all staff appointed members of the partner libraries to gather together for a day of learning, outstanding sessions, and socializing with colleagues. This year, the libraries of the University of Toronto, York, and Ryerson Universities welcome OCAD University Library as a full partner.
The TRY+ Library Staff Conference is hosted by the University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto.
