Fall Conference 2014

Where Have We Been? Where Are We Going?

October 16-17, 2014

Join us for the CLAMS Fall Conference 2014 as we delve into the opportunities offered by ALMA, explore how we can teach students and faculty to effectively use Primo (and how to overcome some of its quirks), and solicit new ideas for what a library consortium should be. Participate in the conversation. Use #ExLibrisAlma  #ExLibrisPrimo and #CLAMSFall14 to let us know what questions you have!
