Registration is now open for the North American Virtual Reference Online Conference! This free, fully online event is open to all - regardless of library type or experience with virtual reference. The theme is “Fully Present Online.” The conference will take place on February 12, 2019 from 11am-4pm Eastern Time/8am-1pm Pacific Time.

The event will kick off with keynote speaker Miguel Figueroa, from ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries.  We'll offer two program tracks throughout the day: in-depth 45 minute sessions, or blocks of 15 minute Lightning Talks organized around a theme. Themes include: Incorporating Emerging Technologies in VR; Communication Strategies & Best Practices; Supporting Yourself & Others in a Virtual World; and Virtual Reference Services in Academic Libraries.

Attendees can choose to move as they like from one track to another. Only have time in your busy day for one session? That’s ok! Take a look at the program schedule and join us when you can. All sessions will be recorded and available for later viewing by attendees
