Call for Proposals

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 Marketing
Technical Services Assessment Resource Sharing
Personnel Management Collection Development Fundraising
Copyright 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 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.

Please refer to the “Guidelines for the SUNYLA Annual Conference Expenses” for information on expense reimbursement.
