Early Bird Registration Opens November 19th, 2018

Join us at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Wednesday, January 30th to Friday, February 2nd, 2019 for the annual OLA Super Conference. We have exciting line-up of OHLA sessions and sponsored events this year! Please visit the OLA website to view the full schedule.

Conference Theme: Powered by the People

Description: Our communities, whether they be towns, cities, Indigenous communities, campuses, schools, organizations, or communities of common interests, are powered by the people. Libraries empower the people. They fuel communities by providing resources, programs, services and support for self-directed growth and development. Libraries have always been, and always will be, for the people.


If you’re planning to attend the OLA Super Conference 2019, why not sign-up to be a convenor? It’s a fun and easy way to participate in the conference with minimal time commitment.

Please note that session convenors DO NOT receive registration discounts. However, you name and institution appears in the final conference program.

Duties are simple:

  • Contacting the speaker(s) before the conference to introduce yourself.

  • Confirm the AV requirements and let your division planners if there are any changes.
  • Arrange to meet your speaker(s) before the conference, help them find their room (if needed).
  • Introduce your speaker, and read their biography.
  • Troubleshoot issues that may come up during the session (i.e. find I.T. person to fix technical problems).
  • Remind speaker(s) to upload their presentation to the OLA Super Conference Website.
