In recent years the reproducibility of research has become a topic of increasing concern for researchers, funders, publishers, and the public. As many of the proposed fixes to reproducibility are key areas of academic librarianship, many librarians have been responding to these concerns with institutional services, professional development, and scholarship. seeks to bring these folks together for a half day of discussion, sharing, and inspiration. The conference will last 4-6 hours and include a keynote, a panel, presentations, lightning talks, and virtual breakout room activities.
