VLACRL Call for Proposals

VLACRL Call for Proposals

The Virginia chapter of ACRL (VLACRL) invites you to submit proposals for presentations at its second annual conference. This year’s theme is “Bringing the Big Picture to Your Campus.” The conference will be held as part of the Virginia Library Association 2010 Annual Conference, October 21-22, 2010 in Portsmouth,VA.

Want to add a peer-reviewed presentation to your CV? Looking to become more involved in the regional ACRL Chapter? Have a really cool idea you want to share with colleagues? We want to hear from you.
Proposals are due by 5:00 pm, April 2, 2010. Those chosen for the conference will be notified by April 24, 2010.

Proposals will be selected through a blind peer-review process. This year, presenters have the option of submitting proposals for either a 45-minute concurrent session presentation or a booth in our poster session. Proposals of both varieties will be judged based on their significance and applicability to academic librarianship, the quality and creativity of the work or research, and the potential to fill a gap in knowledge or to build on previous work. The work or research in the proposal may either be completed or in-progress.

Submit your proposals online at:
