We hope you are having an amazing summer and are starting to make your travel plans for the fall. Put the Access Services Conference on your list for this year. The 2022 Conference will be November 15-17 and held at the Loudermilk Conference Center in Atlanta, GA. It is once again affordable and packed with rich information for access and public service professionals in your library. If your travel budget is tight again this year, no worries, we are offering virtual packages that include access to all sessions, both synchronous and asynchronous. We offer group virtual packages that are a great bargain for your institution as well. Though, we hope to see as many of you in person as possible. Nothing beats those face-to-face engagements, even if we are masked. We have another year of excellent programming selected for you and we hope to see you in November.
