2024 Government Information Day Conference Schedule Set

The 2024 Government Information Day conference schedule is set! The Indiana State Library is proud to host the 6th GID conference. This year’s conference will be a little different than years’ past. For the first time, some conference sessions (those in the History Reference Room) will available in person and virtually. Attendees will also have the change to attend a Legal Resources Roundtable session, as well as participate in a behind the scenes tour of the Indiana State Library. The conference is still free to attend, and sessions (including the behind the scenes tours) are eligible for 1 LEU per session. Registration for the event will open in March. There will be separate registration pages for in person and virtual registration. The conference schedule is listed below.
