Call for proposals, BRASS Online Symposium Spring 2024 (April 24, 2024 - Virtual)

The Business Reference in Academic Libraries Committee of BRASS seeks proposals for engaging presentations to be part of an online symposium via Zoom on April 30th & May 1st. Potential presenters, mark your calendars for a tech check on April 24th. Proposals should describe a 30 or 45-minute session (a presentation with time built-in for facilitated discussion and/or question-and-answer) that relates to an aspect of business librarianship.

Please share your experience with us!  We welcome interactive proposals that discuss and address professional change, and we encourage materials that attendees can take-away in such topics as:

  *   Instruction: Designing effective instruction/programs and new teaching techniques and content
  *   Research: Planning and/or fulfilling projects and grants
  *   Outreach: Building sustainable relationships and collaborations
  *   Professional development: Navigating the terrain of connecting, networking, and engaging for learning and growing
  *   Services: Expanding service offerings as an information professional

We are especially looking for sessions relating to themes of social justice, critical librarianship applied to business librarianship, ESG, collection development strategies, artificial intelligence (AI), and business information literacy.

The call for proposals will close on Friday, March 8th. Please use this form: to submit proposals. Proposals may be submitted by anyone, but priority consideration will be given to proposals from BRASS members. Check out the BRASS webinar best practices guide for tips and tricks:
