THE LIBRARY IS OPEN ONLINE! While our physical spaces remain closed, the CCNY Libraries team is working remotely to make library resources and services available online.
What to Expect
A virtual conference is hosted entirely over the internet, allowing attendees to access live and pre-recorded sessions and events from their electronic devices. Attendees participate through a platform designed specifically for a virtual conference experience. Participants will access this platform to watch sessions streamed live and engage in sessions by asking questions and commenting in real-time.
In addition to the live events, the Virtual Conference includes vendor presentations, networking opportunities, the ability to search for and chat with other conference attendees, and other features specifically designed to give virtual attendees the same opportunity to learn and engage with the presenters.
