On Oct. 12-14, 2023, SEMLA welcomes all interested members to gather at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, for the SEMLA 2023 Annual Meeting!

On this website, you can find information on the scheduled one-day pre-conference workshop, Music in Libraries: Just the Basics as well as the program for the SEMLA 2023 Annual Meeting.

Conference accommodations will be provided by the Courtyard by Marriott in Decatur, Georgia, 130 Clairemont Avenue, Decatur, Georgia, USA, 30030, which is roughly 2.5 miles from Emory’s Woodruff Library. The deadline for the SEMLA group rate is September 13.

The traditional SEMLA conference banquet will be held on the evening of Friday, October 13, at Café Lily.

If you would like to stick around on Saturday evening following the conference, feel free to check out Oakhurst Porchfest in the afternoon/evening of Oct. 14! Local musicians play on porches throughout the Oakhurst neighborhood, within walking distance of the hotel.

Finally, for students or those fresh in their library careers, we invite interested individuals to apply for the Pauline Shaw Bayne Travel Grant.

We hope to see you all in Atlanta!
