Leeward at HLA 2015

Screen Shot 2015-12-09 at 1.39.18 PMI was inspired by much of what I heard and am excited to bring some of these ideas and programs to our Library.  [Carina Chernisky]

The Hawaii Library Association Conference was held at the Hawaii Imin International Conference Center, East-West Center on December 4-5. The annual conference is an opportunity for librarians to share, learn, and network with colleagues from across the State.  This year’s theme was building community.

Leeward faculty and staff presented four sessions at this year’s conference on topics ranging from a collaborative OER initiative, learning commons successes and challenges, an innovative community outreach program, and improving website accessibility.
