From the Conference Website:
As universities continue to add and diversify their graduate programs, academic libraries have become increasingly responsive to the distinct needs of graduate students, considering and experimenting with specialized services, instruction programs and spaces. The mission of the conference is to provide the opportunity to share innovative approaches, best practices, and research on how academic libraries serve graduate students. Program sessions may be offered in traditional formats (such as individual and panel presentations and roundtables) and nontraditional formats.
