PrairieCat Users Group Day (PUG Day) is an annual event dedicated to professional development, networking, and continuing education. PUG Day sessions are provided on both PrairieCat-specific topics as well as topics of interest to all types of libraries. The event program is available below.

The keynote presentation and breakout sessions by our featured presenters from Face to Face Communications and Training, Gail Johnson and Pam Parr, were made possible by a RAILS CE networking group grant.

Registration Deadline: September 14, 2018.

Cancellation Policy: In order for your library to not be billed if applicable, attendees must cancel registrations by September 21, 2018.

Schedule: Registration check-in begins at 8:30 am and the program begins at 9:15 am.

Payment Information: The day includes all sessions, lunch, and light refreshments.
