Call for Proposals: Louisiana Virtual Academic Library Conference on November 7 (Deadline July 1)

(via Jennifer Hamilton, University of Louisiana at Lafayette)

The LLA Academic Section and ACRL-LA are partnering to host a virtual conference on Thursday, November 7, 2019. Present from the comfort of your own office. Proposals due MONDAY, July 1!

Submit your proposal relating to library archives, instruction, public services, technical services, leadership, management, and more. All proposals of keen interest to academic librarians are welcome, and not limited to librarians practicing in Louisiana.

Most sessions will last 50 minutes and time for discussion should be factored into planning. Formats include workshops, panel and group discussions of key issues, academic paper presentations, and 10-minute lightning talks.

Submit your proposal at http://bit.ly/lavirtualacademic by midnight on July 1. The conference committee will review all submissions and contact those accepted to be part of the conference by August 1st.  This year we are piloting a blind peer-review process, in support of those presenters for whom blind-peer review is a factor in merit and promotion.

If you have questions, please contact Heather Plaisance (hcplaisance@louisiana.edu) or Jennifer Hamilton (jen@louisiana.edu).
