CFP: 2017 ARSL Annual Conference (Association for Rural and Small Libraries - Utah September 2017)

The Call for Proposals for the 2017 Association for Rural & Small Libraries Conference is now open!  The conference will be in St. George, Utah (September 6th through 9th).

Do you know of a great program or innovative project that will help take libraries to the next level? Our theme for this year’s conference is Libraries Elevated and we would love to see topics that take libraries from ordinary to extraordinary.

Proposals should be on topics relevant to small and/or rural libraries and workshops designed for ease of application.  Topics presented in a practical, hands-on style will be preferred.  Breakout sessions are 1-hour workshops while Pre-Conference sessions can be either half-day or full day events.  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).  No additional funding or expense contributions will be available for this conference.  

Submissions for both 1-hour programs and Full/Half Day Preconference workshops are being accepted.

The deadline to submit this proposal is midnight on March 15, 2016. Please be sure to keep a copy of your proposal.
