CFP: Diversity and Libraries - ABQLA conference in Montreal, Quebec, Canada (May 2018)

ABQLA is pleased to invite members of the library and information professional community to submit conference proposals for their 86th annual conference to be held in Montreal, Quebec on Friday, May 4th, 2018. The theme for this year’s conference is “All Inclusive: Leading, Inspiring, Empowering.” In an era of divisiveness and exclusion, libraries can play an important role in welcoming and empowering members of their communities.

How does your library celebrate diversity? What services do you offer that empower your patrons? How is your library ensuring a safe and welcoming space for all? The ABQLA Conference Committee strives to provide a range of sessions that are of interest to the broad library community, and we encourage proposals from libraries and organizations of all sizes.

Types of proposals:

Presentation: 30 to 45-minute sessions on research, projects, best practices, etc.
Workshop: 45 to 60-minute interactive sessions that engage participants in intensive discussion and/or activity.
NEW! Poster: short graphic presentations that will be presented in a special poster session.

For more information on the conference and ABQLA, please consult:

The submission deadline is January 21, 2018.
