Never Neutral: Resistance, Persistence, Insistence

Substance Abuse Librarians & Information Specialists
Association of Mental Health Librarians

2018 Annual Conference - SALIS's 40th, SALIS/AMHL's 3rd
May 1-4 · Berkeley, California, USA

In honor of SALIS's 40th birthday, the 2018 SALIS & AMHL Conference was held in Berkeley, California, home of SALIS Home! 2018's hosts were Julie Murphy of PIRE, Tom Colthurst of the Silver Gate Group, SALIS Executive Director Andrea Mitchell, and Len Levin of the Association of Mental Health Librarians (AMHL).

Our theme in 2018 was Never Neutral: Resistance, Persistance, Insistence, and presentations focused on how our work as information professionals and/or policy makers intersects with what can only be described as an assault on facts, privacy, and access to information resources. 

View the full 2018 program.

As always, SALIS greatly appreciates the support of its generous 2018 Sponsors and Exhibitors!
