PrairieCat Users Group Day (PUG Day) is an annual event dedicated to professional development, networking, and continued education. PUG Day sessions are provided on both PrairieCat-specific topics as well as topics of interest to all types of libraries. The draft event program for the day with session descriptions is provided at the bottom of the page (subject to change).

The keynote presentation and breakout session by our featured presenter, Emily Clasper, were made possible by a RAILS CE networking group grant. Emily Clasper is an experienced librarian, project manager, speaker, and consultant who has been working for the Suffolk Cooperative Library System since 2005.
