CFP: Association for Rural & Small Libraries 2015 Conference (Little Rock, Arkansas - October 1-3, 2015)

The Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) invites proposals for break-out session presentations for the 2015 Conference to be held in Little Rock, Arkansas, October 1 - 3.

Conference URL:

Proposals for these 1-hour sessions can be submitted using our online form found here:  The deadline to submit the form is March 13, 2015

All proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Programming Committee.  Those who submit a proposal will be notified whether or not their proposal was accepted by April 6, 2015.

This year’s conference theme is “Rockin’ in Little Rock.”  Themes we hope to see among your proposals include the following:
Libraries Rock ….
  • Building Community Partners
  • Solving Problems with New Approaches
  • Creative Management
  • Technology  Tools

We remind presenters that workshops must be geared toward the small and rural library audience, and those that are practical, hands-on, and how-to are preferred. This is not the proper venue for post-graduate dissertations or marketing products. Additional instructions are included on the form.  

Workshop presenters will receive ONE complimentary conference registration per workshop title selected. (i.e. a team of three presenters working on one workshop will receive one complimentary registration).   

The committee is looking forward to receiving your submissions.

Good Luck!
