    Is there a non bit.ly link that can be used for registration?
    Many federal networks block bit.ly links and I've heard from librarians and library technicians that they would like to attend the presentation.

    Thank you.

    Thanks so much for your quick response. Our Army librarians in Europe are sad to miss the live event, but I pointed out all the great recordings you have from past events.
