Iowa Libraries Online Conference (ILOC)
ILOC started as a virtual conference in 2008 as a way for Iowa librarians to stay connected during the winter months when travel gets difficult. Initially designed for small libraries, today institutions of all sizes can find something of value on the program.
Can't attend all day? No problem! Come into Zoom whenever and wherever you can. The conference is free and you can come and go as you please.
ILOC features keynote speakers and breakout sessions throughout the day, including a special event in the evening for library trustees.
Thank you for attending ILOC 2023!
This year’s conference was all about Productive Partnerships. While we focused on saying “yes” to opportunities last year, we realize that libraries cannot do all things. Being purposeful in determining what ideas to pursue, and with whom to undertake those pursuits, will make partnerships more productive in the long run.
Links to the webinar recordings will be posted soon on the ILOC schedule page:
