Collective Imagination is the perfect opportunity to share your expertise with the TMS community, whether you’ve created a system to better manage a team of digital archivists, or developed a set of timesaving SQL scripts, or found a new way to support efficiencies at your institution. In addition to having a global forum for your project, all speakers will have their CI registration fee waived and receive an invitation to the speakers-only networking reception.

Share your Knowledge

TMS users have all levels of expertise so if you want to share tips and tricks, a few best practices that work for your institution, or take a deep dive into a special project, all ideas are appreciated by the community.
