The focus on supporting student learning by Northwest Missouri State University’s B.D. Owens Library continues Friday, Nov. 1, during the 19th annual Brick and Click Academic Library Conference.

The one-day conference draws library professionals from throughout the nation to discuss and explore cutting-edge technologies and practical solutions. Peer-reviewed presentations will focus on topics such as student engagement, next-gen catalogs, collection development, digital projects, fake news, activity-based teaching, information literacy, university archives, customer service and administration.

The conference takes place on the third floor of the J.W. Jones Student Union, on the Northwest campus.

“By hosting the Brick and Click Conference, the B. D. Owens Library and Northwest provide practitioners access to quality library programming and educational content,” Dr. Lea Briggs, library director at Northwest, said. “Brick and Click meets a need in the region. It also provides our staff opportunities to grow their organization and management skills by producing a professional development conference.”

B.D. Owens Library aspires to provide quality resources, expert services and inclusive spaces to cultivate intellectual growth and life-long learning in the diverse communities we serve. It facilitates intellectual and personal growth by providing relevant research collections, tools, services and inclusive spaces.
