Librarians are innovators.
Founded in 2014, The Library Collective is all about learning, networking, and kickstarting new ideas among next-generation librarians and library stakeholders.
We started by hosting an annual gathering (called The Collective) that continues each year and have grown to offer other year-round programming and resources to serve curious librarians from around the globe.
We are an independent, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to education and innovation for better librarianship.
More about our approach to affordable, useful, and fun professional development can be found in our open-access articles, including:
