SOLINET Annual Membership Meeting

Call for Submissions

SOLINET, Southeastern Library Network, and the SOLINET Annual Membership Meeting Planning Committee invite proposals for a panel or an individual presentation for the 2009 Annual Meeting to be held May 14-15 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The theme for the 2009 meeting is “The Changing World, Changing Libraries.” The world is changing and we know the library is changing with it. In order to fully discuss this topic, we are looking for sessions that represent new ideas for the library world – not what has already been happening, but ideas about what may be just around the corner. It may be patron service that is on the verge of changing drastically, changes in public and private partnerships or innovations in technical services. The world is changing. Let us know how that change may affect your library and how you are preparing to face that challenge.

Accepted submissions will be offered space in one of our concurrent sessions. Each concurrent session will run one hour.

Please follow these guidelines:

  1. All submissions must include a session title, short description appropriate for the conference program, and the names, institutions, job titles and email addresses of those who will be presenting the material at the conference. Session titles and descriptions will be final upon submission.
  2. Note your intended audience, both library type and position(s) within the library.
  3. Include A/V requirements for your session if it is accepted for the conference.

Please send a copy of your proposal to Laura Crook by 5PM on January 30, 2009 at the following street or email address. Acceptance emails will be sent before February 13, 2009.
