“On behalf of the ARLIS / NA Executive board and the 2021 conference planning committee, I am pleased to invite you to participate in the 2021 ARLIS / NA Virtual Conference. Our conference theme is “Convergence = Creativity + Collaboration” and these ideas are woven throughout the program. Panel sessions, talks, discussion forums, and other events will feature new and continuing projects, explore the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on libraries and arts institutions, and showcase the scholarship of our members. Hosted by the ARLIS / NA MOQ (Montréal, Ottawa, Québec) Chapter, this year’s annual conference promises to be a dynamic online event that will feature highlights from the city, museums, and libraries of Montréal.”
