Call for Panels - Assn. of College & Research Libraries 2017 (Baltimore, MD)

The ACRL 2017 Panel Sessions Committee is currently accepting applications for panel discussions at the Association of College & Research Libraries 2017 conference! The deadline is May 6, 2016.

A panel session offers an opportuney occasion for two to four presenters to engage in a cohesive and productive conversation about a topic of importance to academic libraries and librarianship.  Lasting 60 minutes (including time for Q&A), the discussion proves effective in prompting the audience to think about the topic and/or share insights from different perspectives.

Conference tags can stimulate your thinking and position your proposal within the conference theme.  Proposals for traditionally underrepresented topics such as scholarly communication, special collections/archives, and technical services are especially welcome, so please share this with any friends or colleagues who may have expertise in those areas!

Information about submitting a proposal is online.  When you are ready to submit, click here to start the process.

The submission deadline is May 6, 2016.  Feel free to contact me or the Panel Sessions Committee Chairs Adrian Ho (hoadriank@gmail.com) and Heidi Steiner Burkhardt (heidisb@umich.edu) if you have any questions.
