On behalf of the 2008 International Association of School Librarianship Program Committee, I am pleased to announce that the online submission site for 2008 conference proposals is now open and will accept proposals through 15 January 2008. Please note that this time frame is later than what was originally posted to the IASL Web site.
We seek proposals for four types of presentations: professional papers, Research Forum, workshops/demonstrations, and poster sessions.
Please refer to the call for proposals page at http://www.iasl-online.org/events/conf/2008/call-papers.htm for detailed information on this year’s theme, “World Class Learning and Literacy Through School Libraries,” its related subthemes, descriptions of each type of presentation, and a link to the online submission site.
The online submission form will require that you register, input some information into the form provided, and upload your proposal (without name or contact information to ensure a fair peer review). You will also be offered the opportunity to volunteer to review incoming papers.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
We are looking forward to receiving and reviewing your submissions.
