The planning committee of the 46th Annual Conference of the International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) is excited to invite you to join us for IAMSLIC’s first ever virtual conference! 

The conference will be held online via Zoom 13-14 October 2020 from 8:30am EDT to 8:00pm EDT each day.  The conference planning committee worked to ensure the program times worked for all presenters and rotates through the IAMSLIC membership regions and time zones.  To check where this falls in your time zone, please refer to: 

The 2020 conference theme is Changing Tack: Adjusting our Sails to Navigate Uncertain Waters. Changing Tack refers to changing direction, position, or course of action in order to adapt to the conditions of the environment you are presented with. It is all about adjusting what you have in order to continue forward in the right direction during turbulent times. This year has presented us all with new and unparalleled challenges and obstacles to overcome. In order to keep sailing on, we have had to adjust and adapt in new and innovative ways.

In addition to the accepted talks, we will hold our annual business meeting, host regional group member meetups, provide times to network and socialize, facilitate virtual tours, and more!
