The Collective,

Knoxville, Tennessee, United States Knoxville, Tennessee, United States

  • About the event

    Geared towards librarians, archivists, and library staff at academic libraries, The Collective brings together next-generation practitioners who wish to learn from and collaborate with one another.

    The event is a hybrid of the best of what conferences and “unconferences” have to offer, The Collective limits event overlap and emphasizes thoughtful, in-depth discussion and workshops over lecture-style presentations.

    It was born out of frustration with the lack of tangible skills and takeaways at many conferences, The Collective is designed as a low-cost, high-impact gathering to encourage collaboration and sharing among practicing librarians creating innovative work.

    Why should you sponsor?

    This highly interactive and low-cost event brings the most innovative and forward-thinking librarians from over 140 institutions from across North America to Knoxville every year. Now in its fourth year, The Collective is regularly praised by library professionals and has quickly become the go-to conference for librarians interested in defining the future of libraries. As a newly-minted 501(c)(3) organization with tax-exempt status, we’re excited to continue to innovate and reinvent low-cost professional development for librarians.
