This year’s convention motto is #CreatingFreeSpaces. The experiences during the pandemic have made clear how important the link between the digital and analog dimensions is. Deciding exactly how to fill the free and open spaces in libraries is a process that is constantly being reviewed.
At this conference, FOBID and BID complete their partnership, which has been running since 2018.
