CFP: Library Conference Reports Focused on Business Themed Topics (SLA, ALA, etc.)

This is a notice for the Conference Reports section of TickerThe Academic Business Librarianship Review is a forum for the exchange of the research, best practices, and innovative thinking in business librarianship and business library management.  Published by the Academic Business Library Directors (ABLD), this open-access journal considers all aspects of business librarianship through articles, thought pieces, member profiles, case studies, and conference reports.  We are expecting to publish our first issue this year.

The Conference Reports section seeks informal articles capturing the themes, key speakers, vendor exhibits, resources and other information about library conferences. In particular, the articles sought out for this section focus on the needs of business librarians. Reports for any business librarian meetings (such as with ABLD, EBSLG, APBSLG, CLADEA, etc.) are relevant, as are reports focused on business-related sessions are larger conferences such as SLA, ALA, ACRL, Charleston Conference, etc.  The conference reports should include links as needed and should be in English.

These should be between 750 and 2000 words.  I am looking for people to write on business themed sessions at SLA and ALA meetings and others that we attend.  It is also good to have different perspectives, especially for the large conferences.
