Discussion Call for Program Proposals for ALA Annual 2017

by Heylicken Moreno on Tue, Jul 5, 2016 at 06:08 pm

The ALCTS Program Committee invites program, forum, and pre-conference proposals for the ALA 2017 Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois, June 22-27. The committee will also accept proposals from those interested in planning virtual symposia to be held in early/mid-January prior to Midwinter 2017 in Atlanta, as well as virtual pre-conferences to be held in early/mid-June prior to Annual 2017.

The committee will also accept proposals from those interested in planning virtual symposia to be held in early/mid-January prior to Midwinter 2017 in Atlanta, as well as virtual pre-conferences to be held in early/mid-June prior to Annual 2017.

To propose a program, please submit the appropriate Web form from the list below. In addition, plan to send a representative of your group to schedule a virtual appointment to be held with the committee via conference call in July (exact dates and times to be determined).

You do not need to have a completed proposal; however, it is helpful to have working titles and descriptions, as well as a general idea of speakers you may wish to invite. The Program Committee will assist in developing a theme and description, identifying potential speakers, and identifying potential groups in ALCTS and other ALA divisions who may be interested in co-sponsoring your event.

The Program Committee welcomes topics that are of current and ongoing interest to the ALCTS membership, including cataloging, acquisitions, collection development, and preservation in all formats. Programs are either 60 or 90 minutes in length. Pre-conferences may be one or two days in length. Virtual preconferences and symposia typically include an entire day of content, though they may be spread out over multiple days (e.g. two four-hour sessions over two separate days). Proposals do not need to originate with ALCTS sections, interest groups, or individual members.

Suggested topics of interest to the ALCTS membership include:

  • Scholarly communication and open access
  • Acquisitions and collection development
  • Diversity and inclusion in technical services
  • Professional development and training
  • Linked open data and the Semantic Web
  • Collaborations with library systems, applications, and developers
