Towson Conference for Academic Libraries goes virtual!

Have you attended any of our virtual TCAL 2020 sessions? Please let us know about your experience by filling out our feedback form!

For the past five years, the heart of TCAL has been rooted in making local connections by sharing our ideas and interests. It is our wish to recreate this sense of community in a format that will be easy to access and manage during a time otherwise charged with uncertainty. In other words: we want TCAL to remain an open, stress-free, place to share your views and visions.

The conference begins at 9:30 EST with welcoming remarks from Towson University’s new Dean of University Libraries Suzanna Conrad.¬† Presenters were given the opportunity to celebrate their work and ideas in a way that works best for them. You can engage with this conference in a way that works best for you, too!

  • There are eight live sessions planned throughout the day. Find the full schedule and access to WebEx spaces here.¬† These sessions will be recorded and available to view after August 13th.
  • Explore the six prerecorded virtual sessions¬†anytime you like.
  • Short on time but looking to be inspired? Check out our five TCAL talks that are presented in the style of Pecha Kucha – 10 minutes or less!
  • Take a video break and visit our five virtual posters.
  • Introduce yourself and connect with attendees in our virtual Connections Commons.

The comment sections are open as a place to respectfully exchange ideas and insights with one another.

TCAL is committed to the highest standards of academic and ethical integrity, acknowledging that respect for self and others is the foundation of educational excellence. As such, we will cultivate an environment of mutual respect and responsibility. We have a right to be in a safe environment, free of disturbance and civil in all aspects of human relations. Comments or interactions that are disrespectful, unprofessional or that support bigotry will be deleted. (adapted from the Jamestown Community College civility statement)
