The countdown has begun for The Ontario Library Association’s much-anticipated annual Super Conference! As a student, the biggest library conference in Canada can be intimidating. To help those navigating the library conference for what may be the very first time, the Ontario College and University Library Association – a division of OLA – has put together a student guide. The OCULA Student Guide to Super Conference 2024 contains everything we wish we knew the first time we stepped through those doors. More than just a gathering of books and people, the OLA Super Conference is a celebration of the innovation, creativity, and diversity that makes up the library world. Over the course of the three-day event, you will have the opportunity to meet, learn from, and chat with fellow students, librarians, and industry professionals from across the country. With this guide by your side, you will be ready to make the most out of the conference and fearlessly engage in the diverse array of sessions, networking events, and hands-on activities. Get ready to be inspired, challenged, and entertained, not to mention take home more than a few free books! Hopefully, you’ll make new friends along the way.
