IWB is a student-run conference and relies heavily on both monetary donations as well as donations of objects for our silent auction. The silent auction takes place the day of the conference and is comprised largely of donated goods. We greatly appreciate your contributions in helping this day be a success and make an impact.

IWB has a limited number of volunteer positions for students in the MLIS and MI programs. Positions include assisting with registration, assisting with the silent auction, and event set-up and tear-down.
