August 3, 2016Posted by on
ACRL-MD Call for Proposals
September 5 EXTENDED to September 11, 2016, 11:59pm
Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association 2017 Annual Conference
Cambridge, MD, May 10-12, 2017.
Conference theme… Chart New Courses Together
Next year’s joint conference of MLA and DLA will take place in a new location! The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake in Cambridge, MD sits on the banks of the Choptank River. Whether you plan to carpool with your best librarian friends, or arrive by sailboat, with a crew of librarian sailors, ACRL-MD invites you to chart new courses in librarianship! As libraries brave new waters, we are reinventing and reenvisioning our services, spaces, technologies, communities, research, and practice to be relevant and inclusive. Share your ideas with a proposal submission!
ACRL-MD, the academic libraries division of MLA, is accepting conference proposals until
September 5th EXTENDED to September 11.
Standard conference sessions (~ 1 hour), and extended sessions (~2 hours) will be offered. 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 10, 2017.
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 prior programming.
Proposals for concurrent sessions are due by 11:59pm on
Monday, September 5 EXTENDED to September 11! Conference proposals will undergo a double blind peer-review. If you have any questions about the conference itself or this CFP, please contact Sara Arnold-Garza (sarnoldgarza | 410-704-3963).
