The deadline to submit proposals is February 17, 2013. All those who submit a proposal will be notified whether or not their proposal was accepted by March 8, 2013.
Our theme for this year’s conference is entitled “Empowering Small Libraries.” We welcome all proposals that can benefit small and rural libraries in any way but would love to see proposals that include some of the following:
We remind presenters that presentations need to be geared toward the small and rural library audience. Practical, hands-on, and how-to formats are preferred. This is not the proper venue for post-graduate dissertations or marketing products and such proposals will not be considered.
All proposals will be reviewed and chosen by the Conference Programming Committee. Awarded presenters will receive ONE complimentary conference registration per presentation selected. (i.e. a team of three presenters working on one presentation will receive one complimentary registration).
We look forward to your submissions and good luck!
