2018 POWER Library Users Conference

The POWER Library Users Conference registration is open! There will be new topics and opportunities to learn and share with your peers.  There will be sessions on Scan PA, SAS Standards, SHAREit Tips, e-resources, and more! The training is in-person and will be held at three locations across Pennsylvania.
