“Libraries Transforming Communities: National Issues Forums Workshop for Academic Libraries” will be held on Friday, February 9, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. during the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Denver.

The one-day workshop will explore the National Issues Forums approach to dialogue and deliberation. Participation in the workshop is free, but space is limited and registration is required. Participants will also be asked to view three 90-minute webinars and claim digital badges in preparation for the workshop.

This workshop is part of Libraries Transforming Communities: Models for Change, an ALA initiative that seeks to introduce libraries to various dialogue and deliberation approaches, enabling libraries to foster conversation and lead change in their communities. The initiative is made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Questions should be directed to Sarah Ostman at
