The next Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) Regional event will occur March 6-7, 2019, in Salt Lake City, Utah. What is a RIPL Regional? It’s a scaled-down version of the national data boot camp – 2 days, 4 instructors, and up to 70 public library participants from Utah and beyond – that provides the training necessary to begin using data and evaluation for managing, planning, and communicating impact. This event is co-hosted by the Salt Lake City Public Library and the Utah State Library, in partnership with the Colorado State Library and the Colorado Library Consortium. Registration will open Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 10:00 AM Mountain at ripl.lrs.org/ut2019.
Thanks to the generous support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Salt Lake City Public Library, Utah State Library, and the Colorado State Library, this event will be offered at no cost to participants. Up to five travel stipends (covering transportation, lodging, and meals), provided by IMLS, will be available to participants working in small and rural public libraries in the United States. Information about the travel stipend application process will be posted by December 12, 2018 at ripl.lrs.org/ut2019.
And, if you aren’t able to join us for the Utah event, we will offer another regional event in Billings, Montana, October 7-8, 2019. We will share more information about this event in the spring.For more information, please see the event webpage. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
