About the Symposium

The  annual IviesPlus Access Services Symposium provides an opportunity for access services professionals from larger research libraries to share experiences, insights, and best practices with each other.  

When:  June 11-12, 2015

Host: Yale University Library, New Haven, CT

Every year we strive to:

  • Exchange information about the services and initiatives our organizations are undertaking or planning for the near term
  • Explore challenges and opportunities for Access Services
  • Discuss solutions that may benefit other organizations

2015 Symposium Theme

Riding the Waves of Change


Modern libraries are in a constant state of change.  Changing service expectations, skill sets, technology and an ambiguous copyright environment are all hallmarks of working in Access Services.  How can we ride these waves of change and shape their direction?  How do we ensure that we and our staff are able to update and expand our skill sets to provide service?  How do we continue to provide efficient scalable services when issues such as copyright and fair use are in constant flux?  How do we keep abreast of a quickly changing technology environment?  Join us at the 2015 Ivies Plus Access Services Symposium to explore these issues.

Thanks to Atlas Systems for their sponsorship of the Symposium and panel presentation
