Call For Proposals: ALISE Technical Services Education Special Interest Group Session

  • 1.  Call For Proposals: ALISE Technical Services Education Special Interest Group Session

    Posted Jan 26, 2023 03:42 PM

    The ALISE Technical Services Education Special Interest Group (SIG) seeks proposals for its session at the 2023 ALISE Conference, scheduled for October 2-5, 2023 in Milwaukee, WI.

    The conference theme is Bridge the Gap: Teaching, Learning, Practice, & Competencies. The theme "explores the linkage between professional and educational practice of LIS programs or iSchool curricula. In identifying the synergy and gaps between professional competencies and LIS pedagogy and curricula, we hope to build a dialogue between practitioners and LIS educators and provide a platform for creating timely, relevant, and valuable education for our students." 

    The Technical Services Education SIG co-conveners also welcome proposals on technical services education topics that don't necessarily align exactly with the conference theme. We are particularly interested to receive proposals on any technical services education topic that will stimulate discussion among the presenters and attendees.

    Proposals are due to co-conveners Shawne Miksa ( and Karen Snow ( by Tuesday, February 28 at 11:59pm Central. The SIG co-conveners will notify proposers of acceptance by Friday, March 10. If your proposal is accepted, you must commit to attending the SIG session in Milwaukee, WI – there will not be a virtual attendance option. All presenters will be required to register for the 2023 ALISE Conference.

    Proposals should be for presentations of approximately 15-20 minutes in length. The session will also include time for Q&A and interactive discussion with the audience.

    Proposals should include a presentation title; the name, email address, and institutional affiliation of all presenters; and a summary of the planned presentation (no more than 500 words).
