Call for Panelists: IACRL/RAILS/IHLS July 29 Town Hall on Preparing for Fall Semester (Deadline Monday, July 13)

(via Sue Franzen, IACRL Vice-President/President-Elect)

The Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries, the Reaching Across Illinois Library System, and the Illinois Heartland Library System are planning a Fall Semester Town Hall on Wednesday, July 29, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. If you are interested in sharing what your library is doing in regards to reopening your physical spaces or what your librarians are doing to navigate instruction under new circumstances, we invite you to be a panelist!

We are looking to put together two panels.

  • a panel discussing reopening plans and considerations (10:00-11:00 AM)
  • a panel discussing library instruction plans and considerations (11:00 AM – 12:00 PM)

Each section will last one hour with 30 minutes dedicated to panelist presentation and 30 minutes for audience questions and discussion. We are hoping to have 3-5 panelists for each section with a roughly 5-10 minute presentation depending on number of panelists.

If you would like to be a panelist, please fill out this brief questionnaire letting us know your interests by Monday, July 13. Contact Dan Matthews, at matthewsd29@morainevalley.edu, with any questions or concerns.
