5th Annual Joint SALIS/AMHL Conference
42nd Annual SALIS Conference
April 27 – 29, 2021 (Virtual)
The current pandemic has shaken up the world and revealed many cracks in our systems, including how information is valued, accessed and used. It is time for information professionals to reassess our work in continuing to advocate for the value of the role we play in preserving knowledge and fostering information literacy to reduce vulnerability and build community resilience.
We offered an interesting and varied program to appeal not only to SALIS and AMHL members, but to the broader community of librarian and information specialists, as well as others involved in issues related to mental health, behavioral addictions, and alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, opioids and other drugs.
To presenters and attendees, thank you for joining us!
A special Thank you to our Guest speakers: Tom Babor on the upcoming release of the 3rd edition of ‘Alcohol: No Ordinary Commodity’ – Can a book change the world for the better?; Michelle Wu – Controlled Digital Lending; and M. J. Tooey – Resistance is Futile: Change or Die!
