CFP: 17th Distance Library Services Conference

Proposals are now being accepted for the 17th Distance Library Services Conference to be held April 20-22, 2016, in Pittsburgh, PA. The DLS Conference is the perfect opportunity to showcase your research, knowledge and experience in providing library services to those who are teaching and learning at a distance or online.

Proposals will be accepted for contributed papers, posters and workshops in the following subject tracks:
  • Administration & Management
  • Assessment
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Marketing
  • Teaching & Learning
As practices that are effective in distance learning become increasingly applicable in any library environment, the professional development and networking opportunities offered by the DLS Conference can benefit all librarians, educators, administrators, and staff who are interested in expanding their reach beyond the physical campus.
