(via Gwen Gregory, University of Illinois at Chicago)

Have you flipped the library paradigm with a program or service? Have you changed focus? Are you shifting your service model? Where are you stepping out to make an impact? Tell us about it.

The Illinois Library Association Conference Program Committee is seeking proposals for the 2019 Annual Conference that embody the diverse and multi-type membership of ILA and highlight the innovative and creative work members do in their libraries. The goal of the conference is to help members engage with each other and grow in their knowledge.

The theme is Shift: Where Will You Grow? and will explore how we as individuals and institutions can shift our thinking to:

  • Look at new ways of providing service
  • Take a step back to reassess something we are doing
  • See where we can change commonly held beliefs
  • Explore similarities between different types of libraries
  • Engage with ideas outside of the library world

Share your ideas and shifts by submitting a conference proposal. The ILA Annual Conference Committee is seeking programs which focus on pushing boundaries, thinking big, inspiring, imagining possibilities, and encouraging innovation. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2019. For additional information, please visit the ILA website.
