Clever Minds & Human Hearts

Dr Jane Goodall said that “only when our clever brain and our human heart work together in harmony can we achieve our true potential”. It is this harmony – bringing together our intellect and reason with our passion – that makes us powerful and poised to face intractable challenges, connect to our shared values, and create our collective future.

Throughout these challenging times, our members have been tapping into their amazing strength, ingenuity and courage to find solutions and adapt, to ensure that we continue to serve our communities, and provide continuity and support in a time of fear and instability. This is a powerful example of clever minds and human hearts applied with courage in order to adapt and grow.

As we look ahead to Super Conference 2021, we can carry forward this strength to renew our profession, cultivate new opportunities, sustain our communities, find harmony within ourselves and achieve every potential.

Super EXPO 2021

Thank you for your interest in the OLA Super Conference 2021 and the EXPO. It is Canada’s largest annual library and information event. The OLA Super Conference attracted 4,500 in 2020.

OLA Super Conference has grown steadily since 1999 and is recognized as a leading event for professional development and networking on the continent. Many vendors come to OLA when they have policies not to attend state/provincial level conferences because of the sheer size and market size that is presented to them.

Over 8,800 attendees registered

Please look at the Prospectus below for all the information on the event or download the EXPO Application to book your space. Remember that OLA Associate Members receive a discount on space and preference for allocation.
