When does registration close?

Registration closes Monday, September 28th. There's no cap on the number of conference attendees... the more the merrier!

Do I need to attend each session?

No you don't! While you are invited to participate in each session we understand that most people can’t dedicate two full days to this conference. Feel free to pick and choose whatever sessions are most relevant to you. All of the sessions will be available on replay for up to one year after the event, so you can come back and watch, or rewatch, sessions at any time! 

Can multiple people from the same organization attend?

Absolutely! The only thing we ask is that each person registers individually. This helps give us keep our registration numbers accurate and allows us to send any follow-up information to each registrant.

Will the scheduler automatically factor in what time zone I am in when displaying the schedule?

Yes! Once you register and access the schedule, it will automatically show you times reflective of the time zone you are in.

I am trying to get into a session, and the website tells me I need a "pass".  What does this mean?

Not to worry!  This means that you hadn't originally registered for this session.  Just like at in-person conferences, we sometimes like to change our minds about what we are attending at the last minute - so if you are asked to get a pass, simply follow the links to register for the session, and you are in! if you run into difficulties accessing a talk, please email librariesarestrongertogether@gmail.com for more support.

How do I access my sessions?

Links to each of your sessions were emailed to you upon registration, and will be emailed again 10 minutes prior to each session beginning.  A really quick and easy way to see your whole schedule is to log into the conference website and then navigate to "my schedule" (it may be hidden behind 3 dots on the right of your screen).  This should display your whole schedule, and also provide you with links to join the sessions at the start time.  All sessions start on the conference website, however, when you click on the link to begin the session, you will be taken to Zoom, which we are using to broadcast each session.  You do not need to have a zoom account or download any special software to access the session, however, you will be asked to enter a name and email address prior to entering the session.
