The ALCTS Interest Group, Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical
Services (RPLTS-IG) is seeking proposals for presentations at ALA Midwinter
2018 in Denver, CO. RPLTS-IG will meet on Saturday, Feb. 10th, from 10:30am
This year’s Midwinter tagline is “The conversation starts here”, and to
capitalize on that concept, we are particularly interested in proposals
that invite librarians in technical services to think about the changes
happening in library technical services and to prepare themselves for the
changes. 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:
Trends in library technical services
Opportunities and challenges librarians in technical services are facing
Causes of the changes happening in library technical services
New skills technical librarians need to develop
If you are interested in presenting, please email Michelle (
[log in to unmask]) and Tiewei ([log in to unmask]) your presentation
topic and brief description by Oct.31, 2017.
