About Access 2022

Join us October 12-14, 2022 in Ottawa, Ontario, the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation. This year’s conference is being held on the Carleton University campus at Richcraft Hall (rooms 2224-2228), with beautiful views of Pasapkedjinawong, the Rideau River.

The conference will be hybrid, with in-person and remote options for both presenters and attendees. The livestream will also be available, with videos posted after the conference.

Access is Canada’s premier library technology conference bringing librarians, technicians, developers, programmers, and managers together to discuss cutting-edge library technologies.

Access is a single stream conference featuring in-depth analyses, panel discussions, poster presentations, lightning talks, hackfest, and plenty of time for networking and social events.


Access values everyone’s participation, and we’re committed to creating an online space that’s safe and friendly for all attendees. Participants are expected to read and follow the Code of Conduct. The Organizing Committee will be available throughout the conference to provide support and enforcement as needed.

For now, feel free to email us or connect on Twitter. During the conference, remote attendees should use the Zoom chat to communicate with us (it will be faster than email). In-person attendees should talk to a member of the Organizing Committee, recognizable by our red Carleton lanyards and green Access buttons.
