ACRL and LLAMA are now accepting proposals for their Spring Virtual Institute, "Doing Well by Doing Good: Entrepreneurial Leadership for Librarians." Submissions will be accepted through November 16, 2009. Complete details are available online at http://www.acrl.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/events/springvirtualinstitute.cfm.
Taking place April 21-22, 2010, the ACRL/LLAMA Spring Virtual Institute will explore different models and aspects of leadership and management and their impact on academic librarianship in today's challenged and flat economic environments. The institute will offer both synchronous and asynchronous sessions which will be archived after the institute for viewing on-demand.
Proposals are invited for interactive webcasts and online poster sessions. Details about these formats and the complete Call for Participation are online at http://www.acrl.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/events/springvirtualinstitute.cfm. Direct questions to Margot Conahan at email@example.com or (312) 280-2522.
