Attending conferences like the Library Research Seminar is a great opportunity for all of us to network. When large of groups of people with similar interests and goals gather in one place, we have an opportunity to find mentors, collaborators, future bosses, new employees, and peers from other institutions. In order to help you make the most of your LRS-V experience, we have posted some links below that provide wonderful information about networking. Take a look and get prepared to do your best at this conference, and many conferences to come.
