LOUIS has provided a users conference since its inception in 1992. It is currently known as the LOUIS Users Conference (LUC), an annual conference hosted by LOUIS for our partners.
Our purpose is to bring inspired people--like our partners--together to communicate and collaborate to ensure we remain the premier source for our users' research, learning, and teaching needs.
We offer a number of exciting opportunities to participate in the conference. You can present in a single session, moderate a sharing session, or be part of a panel. The conference sessions cover a number of topics, so there is an opportunity for everyone!
LUC 2018 will be held September 12-14 at the C. B. Pennington Jr. Conference Center in Baton Rouge. We have started the planning process. Watch the LUC 2018 page for continuing updates!
Our generous sponsors help us make the conference the success that it is year after year. There are a number of sponsorship opportunities: monetary donation, door prizes, meal sponsorship, and swag giveaways.
LUC 2017 will be held October 18-19 at the C. B. Pennington Jr. Conference Center in Baton Rouge. The planning committee has started the planning process. Watch the LUC 2017 page for continuing updates!
Our users conference gives us the perfect opportunity to honor our members' accomplishments. We now feature an awards ceremony each year, honoring LOUIS libraries' efforts and activities for the past year.
We sponsor scholarships for first-time attendees and/or library support staff. The scholarships provide financial support for recipients to attend the next LOUIS Users Conference. The number of scholarships awarded each year vary.
