Get Involved

Connect with us

The NLS8 organising committee is made up of students, new librarians, and established professionals across the country.  We want to involve our LIS and GLAM colleagues as much as we can as we build NLS8.

So how can you get involved?

Join the conversation on Twitter or Instagram. The official hashtag we’re using is #NLS8

Let your friends know you’re going to NLS8 by joining our Facebook event.

Keep in the loop by signing up to our mailing list – depending on your device, it’s to the side or below this message!

Email us with your questions or feedback about aspects of our planning process: ; ;

Meet Team NLS8 on our blog:

Why not write for our blog as well? Tell us about your experiences at a past New Librarians’ Symposium, or your adventures as an LIS newbie. Email us for details.

Read our Inclusion Statement and work with us to create a diverse, inclusive, and accessible NLS8 community.

Volunteer with us

Did someone say “free registration for NLS8”? Yes. Yes we did.  LIS & GLAM students, find out more about volunteering at the event on our volunteers page.

Bursaries & scholarships

New Librarians’ Symposium is a low-cost, high-value event on the ALIA calendar, but we know that the costs involved with registration and travel can be tough on the hip pocket.  Check our bursaries page for more information about getting financial support.
