#ELPUB2018 Conference Highlights E-Newsletter

It’s hard to believe it’s been over a month since we gathered in Toronto for ELPUB 2018. Even if you weren’t able to join us in person, we are pleased to share some highlights from the conference in this newsletter – please check it out below! Be sure to also check out the many tweets, articles and links to resources that participants have shared online through the hashtag #ELPUB2018.

We received many positive comments and constructive feedback about the conference, and look forward to continuing the conversations with you in the coming months. We heard from many people that they left the conference feeling invigorated and hopeful for the future, but there is still much work to be done. Thank you to everyone who participated in the conversations in person and online.
