Community of Care at 港澳台图库Conferences

In support of the Code of Conduct, 港澳台图库will implement a Community of Care at LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience and the Annual Conference & Exhibition.

Our goal is to enhance a sense of community and safety by providing resources that offer conference attendees tangible support through the following measures:

  • Communicating/Reinforcing the 港澳台图库Code of Conduct:听港澳台图库will post and emphasize its Code of Conduct at conferences and in conference communications. 港澳台图库will also expect abidance to the Code of Conduct protocols at offsite programs hosted by vendors and exhibitors.
  • Conference Ombudsperson and Community of Care Team:听An 港澳台图库staff member will serve as a conference ombudsperson who will coordinate and support the Community of Care Team. This team will be a corps of 港澳台图库members stationed across the conference venue(s) and easily identified by a Community of Care ribbon on their badge, in the event that triage is needed.
  • Mental Health and Counseling support:听港澳台图库will engage a mental health professional who will be available throughout the conference. A communal and tranquil Quiet Room will be available for attendees looking for a calm space during the conference.
