Call for proposals (proposal deadline: Oct. 8, 2017)
As universities continue to add and diversify their graduate programs, academic libraries have become increasingly responsive to the distinct needs of graduate students, considering and experimenting with specialized services, instruction programs and spaces. The mission of the conference is to provide the opportunity to share innovative approaches, best practices, and research on how academic libraries serve graduate students.
Who should attend?
- Librarians providing support to graduate students
- Library administrators responsible for planning and assessing library impact
- Library school students preparing for careers in academic libraries
- Faculty interested in fostering collaboration with libraries in graduate education
For this second conference, we will give priority to proposals that clearly show how the session organizers will foster participation during the session.
25-minute individual presentations
50-minute panel presentations
90-minute workshops incorporating exercises
5-minute lightning presentations: Do you have an idea or tip you’d like to tell others? You’ll have five minutes to tell your fellow graduate librarians all about it!
