CFP: Association for Rural & Small Libraries (October 27-29, 2016 - Fargo, ND)

Does your library go “beyond normal”?  If so, the The Association for Rural & Small Libraries (ARSL) is accepting proposals for break-out session presentations for the 2016 Conference to be held in Fargo, North Dakota on October 27-29, 2016.  The theme for ARSL 2016 is  “North of Normal”  and we’d like to hear about creative ideas that take your library beyond normal.  Proposals for these 1-hour sessions can be submitted using our online form. The deadline to submit isMarch 21, 2016 in order for the Conference Programming Committee to review and make selections. Those who submit a proposal will be notified whether or not their proposal was accepted by April 15, 2016.
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.
We also suggest you watch our website or our Facebook and Twitter streams for the latest conference news!  The committee is looking forward to receiving your submissions.
Good Luck!
Becky Heil
Conference Programming Committee Chair
