Call for Proposals: 2018 MLA/DLA Conference

Deadline: September 3, 2017, 11:59pm

Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association Annual Conference, May 2-4, 2018

Next year’s joint conference of MLA and DLA will once again take place at The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake in Cambridge, MD.  This was a really great new location for the 2017 conference and it promises to be even better next year with even more conference space.

The theme for this year’s conference is: Evolve. The role of academic librarians and the academic library is in flux on many campuses.  Are you evolving by changing your portfolio of services to meet the needs of a new generation of diverse students?  Developing new partnerships or forms of community engagement?  Or maybe you are using something you already have in a bold new way? If so submit a proposal to share how and why you are evolving with the Maryland library community!

As in previous years, proposals for standard 1 hour conference sessions and extended 2 hour sessions will be accepted, subject to the whole conference schedule.  Programs will be scheduled during the whole day on Thursday and on Friday morning, while full-day and half-day workshops will be held on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.

Proposals are due by 11:59pm on September 3rd and will undergo a double blind peer-review.  If you have any questions about the conference itself or this call, please contact Stephen “Mike” Kiel at skiel@ubalt.edu or 410-837-4236
