  • 1.  **URGENT- Please Reply**- Call for AAMESIG Incoming Convener 2022-2023

    Dear AAMESIG members,

     This is an urgent call for an incoming convener for the AAMES Interest Group for this current year - 2022-2023.
    The incoming convener will work with the Convener - Deepa Banerjee - to plan webinars and research forums of interest to the membership,  related to Asian, African and Middle Eastern research or other library topics. Your commitment to AAMESIG/ACRL will be as follows: 2022-2023 – Incoming convener; 2023-2024 – Convener; 2024-2025 – Past convener.

    Nearly all of our events have been held on Zoom/online forums especially after the pandemic, so you can gain professional experience and build your network without having to travel and attend conferences in-person.
    This is a great opportunity to develop leadership experience and we are here to support you if you don't have much prior experience convening forums.

    Please contact me <> or Deepa <> with any questions you have about these roles.

     We are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.


    Your prompt response will be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    With best regards,


    Triveni Kuchi
