Call for proposals: ACRL/DVC wants to know how you use technology!
For the fall 2010 program, we are changing things a bit. We want to hear how academic libraries in our own service area have been using technology. As librarians, we are constantly bombarded with new technologies that promise great results, but it's hard to tell which ones will actually work for our own library. What technology have you employed that made your work easier, services better, or had a great end result? Come share it with your colleagues and get them jumpstarted on something new!
We encourage proposals from any area of library services (instruction, reference, tech services, outreach, etc.) but favor presentations on ideas that are quick/cheap/easy to implement, since none of us have a lot of time or money to spare.
The program will be Friday, November 12, at Penn State Great Valley. All presentation slots will be 20 minutes long. To submit a proposal, simply send an email with a presentation title and description (300 words maximum) to Pat Newland firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 10. A committee of ACRL/DVC board members will determine the final presentations; this is a chance to add a peer-reviewed presentation to your CV!
We will close out the day with roundtable discussions and are taking suggestions for these as well. If you have a topic in mind that you would like to discuss with your colleagues, please submit it to Susan Markley email@example.com by Friday, September 10. If your submitted topic is selected, you will have the option to lead the discussion.
