ACRL 2017–Call for Panel Session Proposals (May 6 Deadline)April 8, 2016
(via Gwen Gregory, IACRL President)
(Cheryl Middleton, Oregon State University) As a member of the ACRL 2017 Panel Sessions Committee, I strongly encourage you to submit a proposal (or more than one!) for a panel discussion of your favorite topic at the ACRL 2017 Conference in Baltimore. A panel session offers an opportune 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 are available to 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!
Information about submitting a proposal is online. When you are ready for the submission, start the process here. The submission deadline is Friday, May 6. Feel free to contact me (Cheryl.Middleton@oregonstate.edu) or the Panel Sessions Committee Chairs, Adrian Ho (email@example.com) and Heidi Steiner Burkhardt (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you have any questions.
