History of TALA

Our mission: TALA aims to lead the way in transforming library knowledge through a one day spring conference on technology, library staff education, and the practice of information services. TALA connects a Triad Library community of library staff, librarians, and community interested in the practice of library futures. TALA is a bridge for knowledge and collaboration across a continuum, from hands-on and informational sessions for the library staff.

Conference conduct: TALA is strongly committed to providing an environment of cooperation and collaboration among its members. These values are central in our mission. The TALA Paraprofessional Conference provides a space in which diverse participants may learn, network, and enjoy the company of colleagues in an environment of mutual human respect.
