They say change can be good for you, and libraries are great at it. Over the last several years, SUNY libraries have encountered and addressed many changes. These include the “big migration” to Alma/Primo, the Information Literacy Framework, transitioning from print to online resources, etc. SUNYLA 2019 will focus on engaging and embracing the changes we will experience this year, while taking a look ahead at the ways library resources and services will transform our future.

The poster session will take place on Thursday afternoon, June 13, 4:15-6:15 p.m.
