Please join us for the 4th Empirical Librarians conference, EmpLibs18. EmpLibs18 is a mini-conference on librarians and research, and will be held on February 16, 2018, at the University of Tennessee Conference Center in Knoxville, TN. 


The keynote speaker will be the incomparable Carol Tenopir. A pre-conference is available on getting started in publishing as a librarian. Concurrent sessions will be offered on scholarly communications and on doing research in libraries. Past feedback on this conference has said how much attendees enjoyed the chance to network with other librarians interested in research and researcher support, and how useful the sessions were on improving the role of libraries in scholarship. Come join us!
