Are you an academic library liaison in Virginia? Do you want to hear from and meet liaisons across disciplinary boundaries? Are you looking for no-cost virtual networking and professional development opportunities? Come to the Liaison Get Together! 

This event is a free opportunity for liaisons across the Commonwealth to gather and learn about what’s going on with liaisonship, in Virginia and further afield. We hope to see you there, so that we can all learn from each other and identify commonalities and common needs among our community of liaisons.

We seek your attendance, lightning talks, and short presentations. Sign up to attend and share your thoughts. We welcome your ideas about all aspects of liaisonship.
