NLLA is currently accepting proposals for our 2013 Annual Conference which will be held on May 13. The theme of this year’s conference, Embracing Culture in our Libraries, will showcase the unique cultural character in our libraries’ collections, public services, research, and daily activities, and consider the idea of progress in relation to our province’s culture, traditions, and individuality.
The programming committee is requesting submissions for one of TWO types of presentations:
Format 1 – 30 minute presentations with 15 minutes for questions
Format 2 – Lightning Round Sessions! 5-8 minute long presentations for those with valuable research, program information and events, and knowledge to share, in a shorter timeframe.
Potential topics may include: Reference Services, Collection Development, Special Collections and Archives, Music Collections (e.g. folk music collections), Ebooks and Eresources, Library as Space, Community Services and Programs, Copyright, Website Design, Outreach, Mobile Devices/ Technology, Digitization, and Open Access.
We are also requesting photos of your collections, libraries, displays, and anything that embodies the idea of progress or culture in your library. Please include the following information: the library name and an explanation of how this year’s theme is captured.
