For a conference set in downtown Baltimore, it was fitting that Special Libraries Association’s 2018 annual show theme was “B More.”

Throughout the week, information professionals attended sessions that encouraged them to “B More Flexible,” “B More Curious,” “B More Inspired,” and “B More of a Leader.”

As opening keynote speaker, Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden, pointed out – information professionals are uniquely positioned to “B More” in today’s climate.

“The appetite for ‘the real thing’ is growing,” Carla said. That means information professionals need to “join together, break down barriers, and create a network of accurate, useful information.”

Closing keynote speaker, bestselling author Wes Moore, echoed this sentiment, noting librarians are “keepers of the stories, keepers of hope, keepers of culture.”
