Initiative Events

ULC is leading two groundbreaking research initiatives (Edge and Learning Labs) that are testing and enhancing new ways that libraries serve people and communities in the digital age. Both initiatives focus on the tangible benefits which people and communities realize through engagement in high-quality digital opportunities that public libraries provide. Attend sessions and register for webinars to stay connected and be aware of updates throughout the year.
