Presented by DePaul University Library and Moraine Valley Community College Library
Located at the Moraine Valley Community College campus (Palos Hills, IL)

Cancellation notice:

This was a difficult decision to come to, but in an effort to support social distancing and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the Information Literacy Summit scheduled for April 3, 2020.

If you have already paid the registration fee by credit card, a refund will be issued back to your card and confirmation email sent once that happens. Credit card payments are processed by our Fine and Performing Arts Center, and because of the large number of event cancelations, it may take a week or more to get those refunds processed. If your institution was issuing a check and that check has been mailed out, please email Tish Hayes with information about how that check needs to be handled (e.g. shredded, sent back, etc).

For those who have booked hotel rooms at Springhill Suites by Marriot/Burr Ridge please cancel directly with the hotel either by phone (630-323-7530) or online.

We hope to see all of you again next year. A few of you have asked about virtual alternatives, but unfortunately we’re unable to provide the support for moving the Summit online. Please contact Summit committee members with any questions or concerns.
