Registration will begin on Friday, February 7, 2020 at 1:00pm Eastern. Presenters register earlier, per the proposal acceptance email they received. 

  • The online form, which is the only way to register, will be made available on this page. 
  • Please be prepared to provide contact info, food preferences, and whether you plan on attending the Thursday night reception (time to be determined) at the time of registration.
  • No payment is due or asked for at the time of registration.

There is no registration deadline, but we recommend you register as soon as possible. Conference spots typically fill quickly, often on the first day. A waiting list will be created if all the spots are taken; current LOEX members have priority on the waiting list. Every year we have been able to offer a spot to a good portion of the waiting list.

LOEX members have registration priority
- If you are not certain of your membership status at the time of registration, please just register. Your status will be verified (by using your institution's name; you do not need any "membership number") when registration closes and any situations are usually easily resolved. 

Registration Rates 

  • $300 - LOEX Members and/or Presenters
  • $345 - Nonmembers
  • $95   - Graduate Students in LIS Programs who are presenting poster sessions

Registration Includes: Opening Reception (Thursday); Breakfast, snacks, and lunch (Friday & Saturday) and all conference materials, breakout sessions, and keynote speaker.

Nonmember Rate
While the vast majority of the spots are reserved for LOEX members, to ensure that librarians from nonmember academic or public library institutions can attend, 10 spots are reserved for nonmembers. If you don't work at a library (e.g., a technology vendor), these spots are not for you; please contact LOEX about possible sponsorship. 

Student Rate

In addition to the spots for poster session presenters, five spots are reserved for full-time graduate students in LIS programs.
