The Oregon Reference Summit<https://sites.google.com/olaweb.org/oregon-reference-summit/home> will continue to host monthly virtual sessions throughout 2021, with reference-focused content appropriate for all skill levels, library types, and experiences.

The planning committee invites you to submit proposals for programs relating to reference service. Nontraditional librarians, library support staff, and first time presenters are encouraged to submit.

Possible topics might include:

  *   The intersection of reference services and social justice
  *   Antiracist reference practices
  *   Multi-lingual reference services
  *   Supporting K-12 students
  *   Reference services for patrons experiencing houselessness and/or other trauma
  *   Providing reference remotely and/or doing reference on social media platforms
  *   Finding and utilizing culturally-appropriate resources
  *   Engaging underrepresented staff in reference services
  *   Success stories
  *   Not-so-successful stories (What did  you learn when things didn't work out as planned?)

Programs should be designed to run for a total of 60 minutes including Q&A; longer programs/workshops will be considered on a case-by-case basis (if a longer program is desired, please include that in the Comments field). The Summit Planning Team will provide the presentation platform (Zoom), manage advertising and registration, and assist and support presenters. More information is on the OrRS website: tinyurl.com/OrRS2021<http://tinyurl.com/OrRS2021>.

The submission form is online<https://sites.google.com/olaweb.org/oregon-reference-summit/home/presentation-proposals>. Proposals will be accepted until March 31.
