Good afternoon, Distance Learning Section Members!

ACRL is conducting their triennial membership survey, opening today, Tuesday, March 13 and closing on Wednesday, April 4. Each ACRL member will receive an individualized link to a survey from ACRL and Avenue M., the company with whom ACRL contracted.

I encourage all of you to participate in this year’s survey.  ACRL is giving away 10 $25 Amazon gift cards as a small incentive; the more survey participants ACRL sees, the better ACRL responds to membership needs.

The Chinese American Library Association Midwest Professional Development Committee invites you to submit a proposal for the 2018 CALA Midwest Annual Conference.

In nowadays’ digital and technological world, library practices have been greatly impacted in one way or the other. To meet users’ needs, library professionals have been actively improving existing resources and services while developing new programs, technologies, and services. There are many questions for us to ponder. For example, how to reframe the leadership to handle all the changes and challenges libraries face in the 21st century? How to assess library activities to make sure we stay on the right track? How to develop practical initiatives in order to enhance quality of library services? The committee welcomes submissions addressing the following topics:

  • Collection and electronic resource management
  • Data Curation and digital scholarship
  • Information Services (library instruction, reference, and research support)
  • Library Assessment
  • Library Discovery Tools
  • Library Technologies, Technical Services, Workflows, Applications, and Systems
  • Leadership and Globalization
  • Open Access Initiatives
  • Professional Development (career growth, tenure, and promotion)
  • Trends and Challenges in Librarianship

Share your experiences and ideas on leadership, assessment, and innovations in any library areas. Proposals are not limited to the topics listed in the bullet points.

Presentation formats: presentation (20 minutes), lightning talk (10 minutes), panel (45 minutes), and poster.

Current LIS students are encouraged to submit a proposal. We will offer $100 for student presenters and waive the registration fee for all student attendees.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please fill out the online proposal form at http://midwest.chapters.cala-web.org/annual-programs/2018-cala-midwest-c....

Notification of proposal acceptance will be sent out during the week of April 20, 2018. Please contact Xiaocan Wang (wang-x@mssu.edu) if you have any questions.
