Online academic conferences are not new, but suddenly in the spring of 2020 what was once relatively rare became much more common. LOEX quickly pivoted our annual, early May, conference from in-person to online for LOEX 2020 and did so again for LOEX 2021. We shifted back to in-person in 2022 and 2023 (and 2024) to take advantage of the benefits of that modality, but LOEX still wants to leverage the capabilities & experience we gained in the online space. We are not replacing the annual spring conference, but we thought occasionally supplementing it with smaller, online conferences in the fall—focused on a topic area or two—would be a great way to give more people an opportunity to share what they've learned and are doing in areas that currently have particular salience in the library instruction & information literacy community.
