Good Afternoon,

As a member of the ACRL 2017 Panel Sessions Committee, I strongly encourage you to submit a proposal (or more than one!) for a panel discussion of your favorite topic at the ACRL 2017 Conference (http://conference.acrl.org/) in Baltimore.  A panel session offers an opportune occasion for two to four presenters to engage in a cohesive and productive conversation about a topic of importance to academic libraries and librarianship.  Lasting 60 minutes (including time for Q&A), the discussion proves effective in prompting the audience to think about the topic and/or share insights from different perspectives.

Conference tags (http://conference.acrl.org/conference-content/conference-tags/) are available to stimulate your thinking and position your proposal within the conference theme.  Proposals for traditionally underrepresented topics such as scholarly communication, special collections/archives, and technical services are especially welcome!

Information about submitting a proposal is online at: http://conference.acrl.org/conference-content/how-to-submit/

When you are ready for the submission, <https://s4.goeshow.com/acrl/national/2017/abstract_submission.cfm> start the process here: https://s4.goeshow.com/acrl/national/2017/abstract_submission.cfm

The submission deadline is May 6, 2016.  Feel free to contact me or the Panel Sessions Committee Chairs Adrian Ho (hoadriank at gmail.com<mailto:hoadriank at gmail.com>) and Heidi Steiner Burkhardt (heidisb at umich.edu<mailto:heidisb at umich.edu>) if you have any questions.
