ALAO 2011: Call for Proposals

Constant Change, Constant Opportunity
ALAO Annual Conference 2011
Call for Proposals

The Academic Library Association of Ohio
ALAO *37th Annual Conference*
November 3rd and 4th, 2011
Hilton Toledo Hotel, Toledo, OH

Presentation and Poster Session Deadline: April 8th, 2011

The ALAO Conference Planning Committee invites you to submit proposals for presentations, 25-minute spotlight sessions, or poster sessions that bring new ideas or approaches useful for academic libraries. This year’s conference theme, “ Constant Change, Constant Opportunity,” looks at the challenges facing academic libraries as budgetary, institutional, occupational, and technological changes cause us to reflect and adapt how we provide services to our users and communities.

Presentations may take the form of contributed papers, demonstrations, workshops, research, or panel discussions. Spotlight sessions can be “lightning round” style programs, multimedia slides, or other presentation techniques that cover a subject or issue that can be dealt with in a 25-minute time frame. Poster sessions should embrace the conference theme and present original ideas, innovative solutions to problems, library-related projects, or creative approaches to dealing with change in today’s academic libraries.

This year we have available both a Support Staff Presenter Grant and a Student Presenter Grant. Further details on both grants are available at the URLs above.
