TRY Library Staff Conference 2015

St. Michael's College in the University of Toronto

Toronto, Ontario

May 5, 2015 – May 5, 2015

Conference logo - Access for All - Collaborative solutions for evolving libraries

The University of Toronto Library is pleased to once again be collaborating with the libraries at Ryerson and York universities to present the eleventh annual TRY Library Staff Conference. We look forward to a day of outstanding sessions FREE to all staff appointed members at these libraries.

The one-day conference is an opportunity for all members of the University of Toronto, York and Ryerson University library communities to gather together for a day of learning and socializing with colleagues. It will take place at St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto on Tuesday, May 5, 2015.

Access can mean many different things in the context of libraries - access to services and access to information are the two key elements. How can libraries ensure that access to services and content we provide remains unchanged while keeping up with the ever-evolving world of technology and user needs?
 
Immediacy and perpetuity of access to digital content and increasing access to valuable archival materials have varying implications. Budgetary restrictions and the need to keep up with progress have heightened the need for collaboration, encouraging libraries to build new partnerships, approaching the traditional idea of libraries as spaces for books from a new perspective of libraries as the “online book places”.
 
This year’s TRY conference will explore a multitude of themes focused on how libraries keep up with the ever evolving user needs to ensure access for all through collaborative solutions.
