The ALCTS Interest Group, Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services (RPLTS-IG) is seeking proposals for presentations at ALA Midwinter 2017 in Atlanta. RPLTS-IG will meet on January 21st, from 10:30am -- 11:30am.
This year’s Midwinter tagline is “The Conversation Starts Here”, and to capitalize on that concept, we are particularly interested in proposals that can start conversations and elicit positive changes in library technical services. Presenters will be allotted approximately 20 minutes, with a short time for questions after the presentations.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
--Special issues of diversity in technical services
--Fostering relationships and collaboration between technical services and other departments
--Advocacy for the needs of both professionals and paraprofessionals
If you are interested in presenting, please email Paul ( [log in to unmask] ) and Mingyan ( [log in to unmask] ) your presentation topic and brief description by Monday November 21, 2016 .
