CAUT Librarians’ & Archivists’ Conference

Collective Resistance: Academic Librarians and Archivists Taking Action

October 21-22, 2022 – Marriott Hotel, Ottawa and Online

Modern technologies, threats posed by casualization and de-professionalization, rising anti-intellectual sentiments, and a global pandemic are transforming the status and working conditions of librarians and archivists. How can librarians and archivists resist the erosion of academic values and academic freedom?

Join us at the 2022 CAUT Librarians’ and Archivists’ Conference to learn how colleagues have successfully organized to defend the profession, uphold academic values, and build solidarity.

The conference will be held in a hybrid format to allow participants to attend in person or online. Due to technical limitations in organizing a hybrid format, some breakout sessions will not be available for online participants.
