2024 Virtual Conference

The ANZREG 2024 Conference will be held online from 17th-19th June, including a best practice / developer’s day. The theme the conference is around change, and we’re excited to see what the community has to share. You can interpret the theme however you like; whether it’s about rate of change in the industry, how you keep up with change in your library, an amazing change you’ve made to a process – we want to hear about it! The success of ANZREG depends on the willingness of the community to share your excellent ideas, initiatives, and experiences.

Registrations are now open – click here to register either individual or institutional attendance.
