CFP: UPRLC 2024 Annual Conference in Escanaba (Upper Peninsula, Michigan - September, 2024)

I am excited to share the UPRLC 2024 Annual Conference call for proposals! This year’s theme is Bold Library Futures, and the conference will be held at the Joseph Heirman University Center on the campus of Bay College in Escanaba on September 25th and 26th.  

We invite proposals for Breakout Sessions at this year’s UPRLC Annual Conference.  This year we are looking for new ideas, programs, and sessions that help us explore a bold and positive future for our libraries. The past several years have been challenging, and we’re setting our sights on where libraries will go next in service to their patrons, staff and communities.

We are looking for proposals that will elevate the ideas in our areas of special interest which include:
  • Artificial intelligence
  • The library as community center
  • Library access in a post-pandemic world
  • Shifting customer service expectations and boundaries
  • Tackling personal and professional burnout 
Each breakout session should be approximately 45-50 minutes long. The UPRLC Annual Conference registration fee will be waived for all those presenting a breakout session at the meeting.

To submit a program for review, please fill out a proposal submission form  at this link: by Friday, May 17th.  

Please submit your proposal and help us create Bold Library Futures! 

Thank you!
