Several members of the NOVA Libraries Team journeyed to Richmond for the Annual conference of the Virginia Library Association, including librarian Katie Hoskins and Associate Dean Matt Todd.

Katie presented on best practices with online research guides (Libguides) and also on the job search strategies prompted by the successful job search workshop (see below).

Matt volunteered at sessions on Open Educational Resources, successful outreach to teaching faculty, redesigning academic libraries to meet demands of the future, and NASA (!).
