#ONLibChat

OLA knows how important it is for libraries to engage with and learn from one another, especially in times of uncertainty. #ONLibChats are an opportunity to do just that.

Unlike a traditional webinar, these free, informal discussions use Twitter and virtual video conferencing software to give a space for library people to connect, ask questions, and share knowledge.

Video conferences have space for 250 attendees at a time, and Q&A is not only expected but welcomed. Sessions are moderated by volunteers from the library community. These conversations are not recorded, and no registration is required.
