Call for Webinar Proposals: Brass (Business Librarianship) Section of RUSA @rusa_brass

BRASS is soliciting webinar proposals to sponsor to RUSA.  The deadline for submitting proposals is January 21, 2019. The form for submission is available here.

Successful online learning proposals will:

  • Show plans for content and presentation strategies appropriate for the allotted time: webinars will be 60 to 75 minutes.  Presentations may focus on a single topic or group multiple proposals of a similar theme together.
  • Identify clear learning outcomes for participants;
  • Clearly illustrate the qualifications of the presenter(s)/instructor(s) with respect to the proposed topic;
  • Show how the presentation addresses a topic either of interest to RUSA members, or represents an area of RUSA’s expertise that benefits other types of librarians, and is unique from other available online learning offerings.

RUSA serves librarians in reference, user services, adult readers advisory, collection development, resource sharing, genealogy and archives, business reference and reference technology. RUSA webinars and online courses are an opportunity for librarians from all types of libraries to infuse their year with professional development they can conveniently—and affordably—pursue from the comfort of their home or office.

The following topics are of great value and interest, though BRASS welcomes submissions presenting on other topics, as well: "the education of business" and applying the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to business education.

Payment to Presenters: Webinar presenters will be paid $150 by RUSA for each webinar presented. Co-presenters may split the payment.
