CJCLS Conference Program Proposal (ALA 2019)

  • 1.  CJCLS Conference Program Proposal (ALA 2019)

    Greetings Colleagues! I wanted to share that the program proposal titled, Community College Librarian-Faculty Collaborations: Effective Partnerships for Improving Student Success, submitted by the CJCLS Conference Program Planning Committee for ALA 2019, was not accepted. I received the news last week. Of course, the committee was disappointed, but the reality that only 23% of proposals get accepted helped give perspective to the rejection.

    At our November 20 Executive Committee meeting, I would like to discuss the work of the Program Planning Committee. Specifically, this charge: "The committee may also coordinate timely topical discussions of interest to community and junior college librarians for Annual Conference and/or Midwinter Meetings." I've attended previous "Hot Topics" discussion and I know the committee would be interested in helping coordinate a Hot Topics session. I'm looking for direction on how this process works.

    Thank you, Stephanie D. Davis
