Call for proposals:


The Florida Association of College and Research Libraries invites you to submit proposals for presentations and poster sessions on the theme, Outside the Box:  Building Academic Library Partnerships.  


Today‘s libraries are reaching out to their campus communities in new and creative ways.  Some librarians are collaborating with their course management system administrators to integrate library resources directly into online courses. Others are working with faculty and campus legal counsel in new ways as they launch institutional repository programs and begin to grapple with the many intellectual property issues that emerge. Some have collaborated with their alumni offices to extend new services to their graduates.  Do you have an experience to share about working with people outside of the library to create new synergies and services?  We want to hear about them! 


Submit a proposal for a presentation or poster session by July 31, 2012 online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FACRL2012Proposals.   Acceptance e-mails will be sent on or before August 15, 2012.  Inquiries may be sent to the FACRL President, Johanna Tunon, at tunon@NOVA.EDU.


Please note the following:

         All  sessions will be allotted 45 minutes for the presentation and questions.

         Time management issues generally limit each presentation to two to three speakers. 

         All presenters must register and pay for the conference.
