The “Brick and Click Libraries” conference has been hosted by Northwest Missouri State University since 2001. The conference was created because of the need for practical and affordable professional development opportunities for librarians.
In order to successfully support the academic information needs of both on-ground (brick) and online (click) students, library professionals and paraprofessionals must continually expand their knowledge base and awareness of new resources and applications. The conference proceedings also provides a publishing venue for academic librarians, as well as contributing to the professional literature.
The first conference consisted of 12 presentations and attendees from the Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri region. Today, “Brick and Click Libraries” draws attendees from coast to coast and includes approximately 27 presentations and 8 Lightning Round sessions. The conference also offers exhibits, networking opportunities, fun door prizes, and great food! Come join us on November 7, 2014, in the rolling hills of Northwest Missouri.
