SUNYLA 2015: The Art of Librarianship

Purchase College, SUNY

Purchase, NY

June 3-5, 2015


Call for Proposals

Deadline for workshops and presentation proposals: February 27, 2015

Anyone who is engaged in librarianship, or who works and collaborates with librarians, knows that it’s not just a profession — it’s an art. Successful librarianship combines professional knowledge, skills, and experience with creativity, curiosity, passion, imagination, and vision. Each library, and each librarian, blends these elements in unique and different ways. Join us for the 2015 SUNYLA Conference at Purchase College in Purchase, NY, from June 3-5, when we will come together to express our creativity, present our ideas and projects, share methods and experiences, stimulate our imagination and curiosity and, most importantly, to celebrate the art that is librarianship.

We welcome your creative and enlightening interpretations of “The Art of Librarianship” for pre-conference workshops and conference presentations for the following program tracks:

·         Reference and Instruction

·         Cataloging and Technical Services

·         Archives and Special Collections

·         Systems and Technology

·         Collection Development

·         Public Services and Interlibrary Loan

·         Professional Development

·         Management and Leadership

If you are not sure which track your presentation would fit into, submit your proposal anyway and we will determine which track would best suit your idea.

Please submit proposals here: Call for Proposals.  If you are submitting proposals for multiple workshops or presentations, please fill out a separate form for each.
