Urban Librarians Unite is calling for presenters for our eighth Urban Librarians Conference to be held at the Brooklyn Public Library, Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn NY on May 1, 2020.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Caution: Librarians at Work!”
and will be focusing on the pragmatic realities of working urban
librarians. Special topics of interest include, working conditions,
trauma in the workplace, mid-career development, badass
library workers, diversity in the library workforce, rights and
protections for staff, and philosophies of work and management.
All proposals will be considered by the ULU educational committee. ULU
is committed to diverse presenters. We encourage all presenters to seek
out diverse and underrepresented voices on topics and issues under
discussion. Preference will be given to panels
which offer a variety of perspectives.
