Featured Conferences and Events

Ivies Plus Access Services Symposium

The annual Ivies Plus Access Services Symposium provides an opportunity for access services professionals from large research libraries to share experiences, insights, and best practices with each other.

The Last Food Mile Conference

Sustainably feeding 7 billion people now and 9 billion by 2050 is a daunting challenge. Reducing massive amounts of food waste is critical toward building sustainable food security in the world. In an era of growing demand for more food, coupled with escalating production and environmental cost, dwindling natural resources, and international unrest, tackling food wastage is paramount to our future. 

Waste occurs at the farm, the processing plant, the store, and the home. This conference brought together experts from national and international, academic and industrial, public and private sectors, to discuss where food losses occur along the food supply chain, why, and how much; what food waste reduction measures work effectively, lessons learned and barriers encountered; and what policies and interventions are critically needed for moving forward

Penn Open Access Events

Each year the University of Pennsylvania Libraries hosts a variety of workshops, presentations, and other events related to Open Access topics.
