[Libs-Or] Call for Proposals: 2017 ACRL Washington & Oregon Joint Fall Conference

ACRLOR Communication acrlorcommunication at olaweb.org
Mon Jul 10 08:53:06 PDT 2017

This year's theme is “Tried & True or Shiny & New?
<http://www.acrlwa.org/2017conference>” and colleagues across the Northwest
are invited to join us on October 19th and 20th to share ideas and
inspirations, build community, and enjoy the idyllic setting at Pack Forest
Conference Center <http://www.packforest.org/conference/> in Eatonville, WA.

Proposals that consider the ways in which the tension between innovation
and tradition is present in our professional lives are welcomed. How do we
address those tensions? Is there an inherent conflict between our roles as
librarians in the past, and our roles in the present and going into the
future? Some questions which might be raised or answered in your proposal
could include: what can be lost by refusing to change? What can be gained
by preserving established practices? Are there areas of our work which
require constant transformation or are in need of meticulous constancy?

Please consider submitting your proposal for a workshop, presentation,
panel discussion, or (new this year!) a poster or a 7 minute “Fail Talk”
sharing an experience you’ve had with failure.

Submit your proposal, including title, abstract (300 word max), and
presentation type here <http://bit.ly/ACRLWAOR17>.

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: August 11th, 2017. Accepted presentations will be
notified August 22nd.
