The ACRL-ULS Current Topics Discussion Group seeks Presenters/Discussion Leaders for ALA Annual Conference 2013

The ACRL-ULS Current Topics Discussion Group seeks Presenters/Discussion Leaders for ALA Annual Conference 2013.

The charge of the ACRL-ULS Current Topics Discussion Group is “to organize informal discussion meetings and presentations on well-defined issues and problems of current interest to university libraries and librarians.” Last year, for example, the Discussion Leaders presented “Instructor-Librarian Transaction: Developing a Proactive Model of Library Service Delivery.” Other areas of interest may include but are not limited to: user experience, assessment, demand-driven acquisitions, information literacy, spaces and services, trends and forecasting, etc.

If you are passionate about academic libraries and would like to share ideas and lead a discussion at the ALA Annual Conference, please consider submitting a proposal. Submissions should be sent to Christine Tobias, Group Convener: tobiasc at mail dot lib dot msu dot edu by Friday, April 19th at 5pm EDT. Since the selection will use a blind review process, submissions should consist of a cover page with the presenter’s name, title, institution, and email address, and a second page containing the proposal only (title, topic, summary or proposed presentation/discussion). 500 words or less, please.

The selected presenter will be notified by Wednesday, May 1. The ACRL-ULS Current Topics Discussion Group meeting will convene on Saturday, June 30, 2013, from 10:30am – 11:30am.
