CALL FOR SPEAKERS - CUBL Breakfast @ SLA 2010 in New Orleans

CALL FOR SPEAKERS - CUBL Breakfast @ SLA 2010 in New Orleans

We are currently planning the annual College and University Business Libraries (CUBL) Section breakfast for next year's SLA Annual Conference in New Orleans and are looking for three (3) people interested in sharing their experiences or research with their colleagues. We had an
incredible turnout for our breakfast in Washington, D.C. last year and expect even more people to attend in New Orleans. Do you want to share your ideas and experiences? If so, then read on.

This year's breakfast theme will be "Advancing within the Academy: Moving on Up."

The CUBL breakfast will feature a panel discussion on advancement and promotion issues within college and university libraries, including scholarly publishing by academic librarians, tenure versus non-tenure positions and a wide range of other promotion and advancement topics.

If you are interested in speaking (15 minutes or so) on any of these topics, or if there other topics you think may be of interest to CUBL members, please let me know. You'll have to come up with your own clever presentation title, though! Please contact me no later than next
Friday, November 6, 2009 if you are interested.

I look forward to hearing from you.
