Our conference theme highlights the resilience of our sectors in dealing with the realities caused by COVID-19 and the use of collaboration and innovation to meet the challenges we face.

LAMNS last joint conference, held in Halifax in 2015, was an historic event that brought the 3 partners together for the first time. "Moving Forward Together” will be another historic moment – LAMNS' first virtual Conference!

For 3 days, employees and volunteers from libraries, archives, and museums across Nova Scotia will come together to learn from each other and share their experiences of serving the public during a pandemic.

The Conference panels, presentations, and keynote events will highlight the resilience of our sectors and the use of collaboration and innovation to meet the challenges we face. This has been a year of expedited growth and change, a year of strength and resiliency, and community collaboration from a distance. Let’s come together and celebrate our sectors – together!

  • Shifting to the virtual (digitization, programming, community outreach etc.)
