DoubleTree by Hilton, Pittsburgh – GreenTree
|We hope you will plan to attend the Pennsylvania Library Association Annual Conference to take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Pittsburgh–Greentree, located in a Pittsburgh suburb with close proximity to city attractions. The PaLA Conference offers numerous ways to further your career with innovative educational programming and opportunities to network with your peers in the library community.
Poster sessions provide an informal forum for library professionals from across the state to share their successful program ideas or innovations with colleagues. An effective poster presentation highlights, with visual display, the main points or components of your topic; the presenter fills in the details verbally and answers questions from those viewing the poster. The object is to gather feedback and to make connections with others interested in the same subject. If you have an idea for a program or study that you’d like to share, we invite you to present a poster!
The deadline for submission of poster proposals is Wednesday, May 31, 2017.
For more information about the conference, and to access the link to the session proposal form, visit the 2017 Conference Information Page.
Thank you in advance to all that submit proposals, we appreciate your dedication to PaLA and to Pennsylvania’s libraries!
The Southwest Chapter of the Pennsylvania Library Association is seeking presenters for its spring workshop, “Teens and Tweens: What they need from us and we want from them.”
Tweens are considered to be between the age of 10-12 and teens are 13-19. Interacting with them has an impact on all types of librarians. For school librarians, these students span the world between children’s and young adult resources as they learn how to access and process information. For public librarians, serving this group runs the gamut from collection development to programming. For academic librarians, how public and school librarians serve these groups determines how prepared for college work they are when they arrive as freshman. Presenters should consider how to meet the needs of this age group while presenting on best practices for bridging the transition from pre-adolescent – to teen – to adult.
Presentations are open to school, public, and academic librarians. To submit a workshop proposal click here… https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SWChapterspringworkshop2017
Deadline for proposal submission is March 17, 2017
The Pennsylvania Library Association’s College and Research Division seeks presentation proposals from academic librarians that showcase the ways libraries and librarians are involved in digital scholarship (or Digital Humanities) for its May 25, 2017 Spring Workshop to be held in Lewisburg, PA. The goal of this workshop is for academic librarians to understand how they can have a role in supporting and promoting digital scholarship across disciplines, and to come away with ideas they can implement in their own libraries. Projects presented need not be humanities-related. Priority will be given to proposals discussing projects implemented successfully on a shoestring budget or with grant funding.
Presentations should be no longer than 10 minutes (there will be 5 minutes between presentations for questions)
Presentations must have a “digital scholarship in libraries/with librarians” focus
Presentations should be widely applicable (most academic libraries could replicate)
Required Proposal Info:
Title of presentation
One paragraph description of project
Presenter names and contact info
Anticipated technology needs
Estimated setup and presentation time
Proposals must be submitted by email to email@example.com no later than Thursday, February 16th at 5pm.
Questions can be submitted to Jill Hallam-Miller, CRD Vice Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org
For full consideration of articles for peer review, please upload submissions by March 15, 2017.
Any questions can be directed to the journal’s editors, Anne Behler (email@example.com), and Tom Reinsfelder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
