The University of Minnesota Libraries’ Enhancing Quality Staff symposium provides a forum for library paraprofessional and support staff to learn about a range of timely professional topics, share ideas and experiences with peers, enhance skills with continuing education, and work toward personal well being.

It is a wonderful opportunity to connect with colleagues from across the library community, to learn, and to have fun in a beautiful setting. 


The symposium begins at 8:30 a.m. (Central Time) with registration and a welcome and keynote presentations, followed by breakout sessions. Attendees choose between 20-plus sessions throughout the day. A box lunch and refreshments will be provided. The symposium will conclude at 4:00 p.m. 

More information can be found on the EQS website.
