CFP: SUNYLA 2010: AN INFORMATION ODYSSEY


(call for pre-conference & conference sessions and poster presentations)

Join us as we explore the ways librarians and libraries have responded
to the many technological advances we’ve seen in this first decade of
the 21st century. This has had a profound effect on libraries and
library staff, and many have risen to the challenge, putting themselves
in the forefront with innovative ways to incorporate and embrace these
changes. Functions that were formerly outside the librarian’s scope of
experience are now standard, from social networking to online learning.

The Program Planning Committee invites applications for participation in
the 42nd Annual SUNYLA Conference, June 16-18 at The College at
Brockport. Presentations (pre-conference and conference), panels,
workshops, roundtables and posters may be on any topic addressing the
conference theme. Please plan on submitting a proposal today!

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

– Information Literacy
– Social Networking
– Collection Development
– Marketing
– Assessment
– Resource Sharing
– Personnel Management
– Fundraising
– Copyright
– Technical Services
– Open Source Software
– Electronic Resource Management

Following the session format of past years, the 2010 Conference will
offer:

– Pre-conference workshops that last anywhere from 2-3 hours
– Conference sessions for both 45-minute and 90-minute time slots

Please select the length of time that would be most appropriate for your
session.

If you are interested in presenting at this year’s conference, we look
forward to receiving your proposal. Proposals may be submitted via our
online form (http://tinyurl.com/yb6q2g3) or by e-mail, snail mail, or
fax to one of the addresses listed below. Please include names and SUNY
units for all designated participants per session.
