The WPWVC/ACRL Program Committee is accepting proposals for our Spring Conference program, Libraries: Leading the Trends, at Potomac State College (Keyser, WV) on June 2, 2017.
Types of sessions:
In-depth presentations (45 minutes)
Lightning round talks (10 minutes)
Posters – by graduate students only
In 2016 the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) published their biannual list of top trends in academic libraries. Through this list, ACRL discusses the ever changing environment of academic libraries and the critical role libraries play in the learning process. As education demands have evolved, libraries are the forefront for critical insights into how students utilize and receive services.
The WPWVC/ACRL Spring Conference is an opportunity to share ideas and create conversation around the latest ACRL trends. How have these trends surfaced in your library? Has the latest insight in a trend changed the perspective of how library services should and can function? Share the details with your peers in a 45-minute presentation or give a brief overview in a lightning round talk. Student presenters are invited to participate in the poster session.
While proposals related to the program theme will receive a higher priority, all topics related to academic libraries are welcomed and encouraged.
Please submit a proposal (max. 150 words) at https://tinyurl.com/Spring17CFP by April 7, 2017.
