The 2017 Convention and Expo will feature traditional, one-hour professional development sessions along with some unique program formats including:

  • LIBchats (quick, high-energy talks)
  • Unprograms (audience participation format)
  • Poster Sessions (displayed in the Exhibit Hall/talk with presenters on Thursday from 2:15-3:15 p.m.).

All of the Professional Development sessions are linked to an Ohio Public Library Core Competency.
