Are you spending your summer working on a new program or initiative at your library? Did you try out some new instruction methods this past year? Are you knee-deep in research for a paper you hope to write? If the answer to one of those questions is yes, then you should consider submitting a proposal for a session at this year’s Maryland Library Association/Delaware Library Association conference!
ACRL MD, the academic libraries division of MLA and the state chapter of ACRL, is on the lookout for conference proposals. The conference will be held in Ocean City, MD, from May 9-11, 2012. Conference sessions are typically 75 minutes long (though there are some shorter and longer time slots available), and are scheduled throughout the day on Thursday and on Friday morning. Wednesday is reserved for full- and half-day pre-conference workshops.
While ACRL MD’s focus is on providing a wealth of quality conference programming for academic librarians, the best sessions also have some relevance for our colleagues outside of the academic library sphere. For information on recent topics, please take a look at the 2011 and 2010 conference programs: http://www.mdlib.org/conference/2011/default.asp.
Proposals for concurrent sessions are due by 11:59pm on Thursday, September 15. Proposals will be peer-reviewed. If you have any questions about the conference or the call for proposals, please contact David Dahl (firstname.lastname@example.org | 410-704-5748).
