Who should attend:
Librarians, curators, and other information professionals; anyone who wants to gain fluency with library data.

Registration considerations:
Each attendee is required to bring a personal laptop with a few specific software packages installed ahead of time in order to participate in this program. For installation and other program details, please visit

This is a two-day session, taking place from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Wednesday and Thursday, August 6th and 7th. Space is limited. Please register only if you will be able to attend the full session on both days.
