The Planning Committee for the 2021 VALE Users’/ACRL-NJ/ NJLA CUS Conference seeks proposals for Poster and Breakout Sessions to be presented at the next conference, Wednesday, January 6 using the dynamic and interactive online platform vconference.
This year’s theme is: “Open, Adaptable and Resilient”
The Planning Committee welcomes poster sessions, breakout sessions, round tables and lightning talk proposals showcasing partnerships, policies, programs, services, and other initiatives that demonstrate how your library is adapting and staying resilient. There is no initiative that is too small to share.
For Breakout sessions, Lightning Talk & Roundtable proposals, please use this form: https://forms.gle/mBppcxTnfSXF6NXJ7
For questions about Breakout Session or Lightning Talk Proposals, please contact: Hilary Westgate, Breakout Subcommittee Chair, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
**Note: Poster Presenters will have their own “room” where attendees can interact with them and ask about their poster in real time.
Deadline & Notification
Completed proposals are due no later than Friday, October 23, 2020. Decisions regarding the proposals will be announced by Friday, November 13, 2020. Please feel free to forward this announcement to colleagues or post it to other appropriate email lists for New Jersey academic librarians.
We look forward to your ideas and contributions for what promises to be a most rewarding day!
