The AALT Conference Committee welcomes you to the
Annual Conference of the Alberta Association of
Library Technicians

May 10 to May 13th, 2018

Our theme this year is “Unearthing Potential,” and, in the spirit of innovation, for the first time AALT is holding the conference in beautiful Drumheller, Alberta. Our logo expresses the potential for all elements in the library atmosphere; old, new and in-between. The logo embodies this by displaying the iconic dinosaur fossils emerging beneath the hoodoos that Drumheller is so famous for.

Let’s come together to revitalize the “fossilized” ideas that still exist in some libraries today. We want to develop these ideas and bring them forward into the future... unearthing their potential. We are embracing this theme by showcasing keynotes, speakers, tours and activities that are original and inspirational. Our goal is that each and every one of you can take away something from the conference that you can implement into your library, work or daily life!

Just like previous conferences, a bus will go from Edmonton to Drumheller and back, with pick-ups and drop-offs in Calgary and Red Deer.

If you have any queries or concerns before the conference, contact us anytime at conference@aalt.org.

We look forward to seeing you,

Chloe Giroux and Megan Sentner
