ACRL 2017 - Call for Panel Session Proposals - due May 6, 2016
As a member of the ACRL 2017 Panel Sessions Committee, I strongly encourage you to submit a proposal (or more than one!) for a panel discussion of your favorite topic at the ACRL 2017 Conference (http://conference.acrl.org/) in Baltimore. A panel session offers an opportune occasion for two to four presenters to engage in a cohesive and productive conversation about a topic of importance to academic libraries and librarianship. Lasting 60 minutes (including time for Q&A), the discussion proves effective in prompting the audience to think about the topic and/or share insights from different perspectives.
Conference tags (http://conference.acrl.org/
conference-content/conference- tags/) are available to stimulate your thinking and position your proposal within the conference theme. Proposals for traditionally underrepresented topics such as scholarly communication, special collections/archives, and technical services are especially welcome!
Information about submitting a proposal is online at: http://conference.acrl.org/
When you are ready for the submission, start the process here: https://s4.goeshow.com/acrl/
The submission deadline is May 6, 2016. Feel free to contact me or the Panel Sessions Committee Chairs Adrian Ho (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Heidi Steiner Burkhardt (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
