Call for Lightning Round Proposals: Lake Superior Libraries Symposium (Deadline May 11)

(via the National Network of Libraries of Medicine – Greater Midwest Region)

The organizers of the Lake Superior Libraries Symposium (LSLS) invite Lightning Round proposals for our seventh annual conference, to be held on June 8, 2018 at the University of Minnesota Duluth Kathryn A. Martin Library. The Lightning Ro9und session will be held after lunch and presented to the entire group. Lightning Round presentations will be 8-12 minutes in length. This year’s theme, “ACT”, invites attendees to tell stories of action. Although the theme is one word, the frame for ACT is “Advance Challenge Transform”. How do our actions as library workers advance, challenge, and transform the profession and the communities we serve? At LSLS18, we will share and celebrate the day-to-day practical work we do that often does not get recognition at conferences, and hopefully in doing so will empower each other to “ACT”.

Breakout session presenters should submit proposals here. The deadline for proposal submissions has been extended to Friday, May 11. Presenters will be notified of acceptance in mid-May.
