“Collaboration Comes of Age”

GG Users ConferenceHand in hand with their observance of milestone birthdays for a 15-and-fabulous GALILEO and a truly tenacious 10 for PINES, Georgia librarians can look forward to another coming of age when the GOLD/GALILEO Users Group Conference turns 21 on Friday, August 13.

The number 21 symbolizes maturity, legitimacy and progressive civic involvement making our 21st conference theme a cause for both celebration and respect for all that Georgia libraries have accomplished through creative collaborations. Join us as we honor the importance of resource sharing – and turn all these treasured resources and events into one GOLDen occasion!

Adding to the celestial pathos of this year’s theme is the 400th anniversary of the publication of Galileo Galilei’s “Starry Messenger”, a work that changed our view of the solar system and our place in it. Come rediscover how our continued library partnerships help us face up to hard times and face down an overwhelming number of “sun, moon and stars”-type requests.

Let’s change our stars on Friday the 13th – initiating instead a library zenith of new economic and educational opportunities for the citizens we serve!
