STELLA welcomes current or aspiring science, technology, engineering and medical/health librarians and those interested in STEM librarianship. In the unconference spirit, YOU will drive the agenda and determine what discussions and breakouts will take place. Previous STELLA meetings have attracted STEM librarians from all over the country.

We look forward to seeing you online for Virtual STELLA 2022 on October 21!  Since this is an Unconference, you drive the agenda and the choice of discussion topics. In order for your voice to be heard, there are a few things for you to do leading up to Oct 21st.  

Here is timeline of what to be on the look-out for: 

Sept 19-30:  Register for STELLA! 2022 and then add your topics of interest to the google sheet for possible discussion sessions. The link to the Topics Suggestion Spreadsheet will be included on the registration confirmation receipt page. If you are interested in giving a lightning talk during lunch, please indicate your topic on the form.

After the registration period, we will send all registrants a confirmation email with a link for you to VOTE on the topics you are interested in discussing.
