We are pleased to announce that Samvera’s 2019 Connect conference will be held at Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis Missouri, during the week beginning Monday, October 21st.
We realize this is the week following DLF and that having two conferences many of our community typically attend so close together can be problematic—but better than having them conflict outright, and these dates were the best remaining option. We will work in future years to have our organizations coordinate on scheduling.
Monday the 21st will be a Samvera Partner meeting. Connect workshops will take place on Tuesday the 22nd and the Connect conference itself will run from the morning of Wednesday 23rd through Friday the 25th.
We anticipate that registration will open early in June—in the meantime please hold the dates and feel free to share this information with others!
Advance notice that the subsequent Connect will be in the fall of 2020 at the University of California Santa Barbara.
On behalf of the Steering and 2019 Host Committees,
Andrew Rouner (Chair, host committee)
Richard Green (Chair, Samvera Steering Group)
