MLA/DLA 2015 Conference: Call for Proposals
Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association
2015 Annual Library Conference: “Boldly Go… where no library has gone before”
Are you working on a new project or paper? Have a great idea you’re planning to implement? Whether it’s been a multi-year plan in the making, or something you’ve just started to put together, we’d like to hear about it. Submit your proposal for a presentation at 2015 Joint Conference of Maryland Library Association and Delaware Library Association!
ACRL MD, the academic libraries division of MLA, is accepting conference proposals until September 1. The conference will be held in Ocean City, MD, from May 6-8, 2015. This year’s conference theme is “Boldly Go… where no library has gone before” to reflect a new conference partnership with NASA. Consider new explorations in the library profession, or unique discoveries made about your library’s services. Were there times you reached for the moon? Did you boldly go into uncharted territory?
There will be standard conference sessions (~ 1 hour), and extended sessions (~2 hours). Exact program length will depend on conference schedule. The programs are scheduled throughout the day on Thursday and on Friday morning. The full- and half-day pre-conference workshops will be held on Wednesday, May 6.
Many sessions sponsored by the ACRL MD are relevant not only for academic librarians but also for our colleagues in other areas of librarianship. For information on recent topics, please take a look at the 2014 conference programs: https://www.mdlib.org/conference/docs/program.pdf
Proposals for concurrent sessions are due by 11:59pm on Monday, September 1. They will undergo a double blind peer-review. If you have any questions about the conference or the call for proposals, please contact Natalie Burclaff (firstname.lastname@example.org | 410-837-5072).
