2016 CLA Annual Convention

Catholic Library Association invites all members to attend the 2016 Annual Conference, March 29-31, 2016 in San Diego, CA. CLA meets in conjunction with National Catholic Educational Association during Easter Week each year.

Those attending CLA are librarians serving patrons of all ages primarily in K-12, academic, theological, parish and public libraries. In addition to general topics for these groups, additional sessions focus on archives, information literacy, technical services and preservation of American Catholic materials. Teachers and administrators registered with NCEA may also attend any CLA session.

More information regarding the NCEA Conference can be found here. CLA will post more information regarding their call for proposals in the coming weeks.

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
