CALL is supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
Note: Proceeds from the conference allow PLP to continue offering training to library staff, and we thank CALL for its sponsorship of California public library staff. If you do not fall into that category and are unable to fund your own conference attendance, you may apply for a fee waiver.
