Transforming Libraries for Graduate Students (TLGS) is a biennial conference, hosted by East Tennessee State University, dedicated to graduate librarianship and its many facets. TLGS, established in 2016, provides a space for sharing innovative ideas and best practices for supporting graduate faculty and students in higher education. The conference hosts multiple session types and formats to accommodate different types of learners and is continuing our interactive webinar series to keep our community of graduate librarians connected and engaged in the off year.

The TLGS Webinar Series is hosted on YouTube at where you can find recordings of previous webinars and recorded conference presentations. Full conference proceedings, including poster presentations, can be found at the TLGS Repository. The first session of the 2022-23 academic year series will take place in the fall of 2022. Follow us on Twitter @TLGS16 for more updates and chat topics.

We are currently seeking submissions for upcoming webinars that focus primarily on copyright and intellectual property, data services, open educational resources, the research and publication life cycle, teaching, and professional development within the scope of graduate librarianship. Session options are for individuals or groups for 50 minutes leaving 10 minutes for questions. If you feel that your topic does not quite align with these mentioned above, but is related to graduate librarianship, please contact us for further consideration. Proposals will be accepted through July 31, 2022 and can be submitted at
