Call for Proposals: Free 2022 Louisiana Virtual Academic Library Conference (Nov. 10-11, Thurs.-Fri.)–Deadline Fri., July 8

(via Brittany O’Neil, Louisiana State University)

We are pleased to announce that after a two-year hiatus, the Louisiana Virtual Academic Library Conference will be held from Thursday, November 10, to Friday, November 11, 2022. The Conference will be held via Zoom and is free to all attendees.

Submit your proposal for blind peer-review on any topic of keen interest to academic librarians, including library archives, instruction, public services, technical services, leadership, management, and more. All proposals are welcome, although preference may be given to Louisiana-based institutions, presenters, and themes. Most sessions will last 45 minutes, and time for discussion should be factored into planning. Welcome formats include workshops, panel and group discussions of key issues, academic paper presentations, and 10-minute lightning talks.

New to the Conference this year are virtual poster sessions and exhibits.

Learn more about the Conference, and submit your proposal, here. The deadline is 11:00 PM CDT on Friday, July 8. The Conference Planning Committee will review all submissions and respond by Friday, August 12.
