The Florida Chapter of ACRL (FACRL) Conference Program Committee invites proposals for the 2019 FACRL Annual Conference exploring the theme “Innovations for Next Generation Libraries.” The conference will be held on Friday, October 18th, at the Nova Southeastern University Alvin Sherman Library in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Successful proposals will share new, creative, and ethically-informed approaches, that advocate equity across all levels in the academic library. From small pilot projects to campus-wide initiatives, we are interested in how libraries are engaging in campus conversations and creating new practices in areas of access, learning, technology, leadership, and collaboration.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Textbook affordability and OERs
Data and learning analytics
Technology in the library/classroom
Presentation and poster proposals from individuals and groups are welcome. We also invite Panel submissions in which speakers will share different views and experiences on the same topic.
Presentations and panels will be 45 minutes long, including Q&A. Poster sessions will be 25 minutes long.
Submit your proposal through the online submission form by June 30, 2019. The lead presenter will receive an automated email confirming receipt of the submission and will be the person notified if the proposal has been accepted.
