Virtual VuFind Summit 2020 Announced

Tue, 2020-05-26 11:57
(May 26, 2020). The organizers of the Villanova VuFind Summit and the organizers of the International VuFind Summit 2021 are very happy to announce that they are preparing a Virtual VuFind Summit 2020 in a joint effort in order to have a fantastic community event in early autumn this year despite the difficult circumstances we all are experiencing right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the current restrictions in traveling and social distancing - not to mention the health risks - it is impractical to have the regular Villanova VuFind Summit in Mid-October take place in person. The International VuFind Summit 2020 in Leipzig, scheduled for September 30 until October 2, was also postponed to 2021 for the same reason. As a result, the organizers see this as a chance to bring the international VuFind community together in one event which will be held entirely online as a virtual conference.
