Have writer's block? Hopefully this resource will help librarians identify publishing and presentation opportunities in library & information science, as well as other related fields. I will include calls for papers, presentations, participation, reviewers, and other relevant notices that I find on the web. If you find anything to be posted, please drop me a note. thanks -- Corey Seeman, University of Michigan(email@example.com)

CFP: Libraries in Direct Action (ACRL/NY 2018 Symposium - December 2018 in NYC)
ACRL/NY 2018 Symposium
December 7, 2018at Baruch Vertical Campus
Call for Presentations:Libraries in Direct Action
In 2018, the core values of librarianship, including social responsibility, education, democracy, and intellectual freedom, have faced one challenge after another. How have academic and research libraries taken action to confront these challenges? What are we doing to uphold these core values?
For this year's ACRL/NY Symposium, we are seekingpresentations and panels about projects rooted in direct action.
Sample themes include, but are not limited to:
Labor, finance, and neoliberalism in the academic library: confrontinginstitutional obstacles regarding staffing, professional development, and advocacy
Challenging the whiteness of libraries: education, hiring, retention, collections, and instruction
The crisis of fact: politicization of information resources and information literacy
Academic libraries and the public good: community partnerships and outreach
Proposals should be 250-500 words in length, submitted byMay 7, 2018. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by mid May. Selected presenters must confirm presentations byJune 1st.
The ACRL/NY 2018 Symposium will be held on December 7, 2018 at the Vertical Campus at Baruch College, City University of New York. Questions regarding submitting or about the Symposium in general can be sent firstname.lastname@example.org
