Got an innovating idea, project, or technology? Share it with New England Technical Services Librarians (NETSL -http://netsl.wordpress.com
) at our 2014 Annual Spring Conference, "Coming Up Roses: Growing Towards The Future".
NETSL seeks forward-thinking proposals in all areas related to technical services librarianship: acquisitions, cataloging, serials, electronic resources, and preservation in academic, public, and special libraries. Participants are strongly encouraged to think about innovative services that meet current challenges in technical services, and how we are leaders of change within technical services and in our libraries as a whole.
Our 2014 Annual Spring Conference will focus on how technical services librarians are increasingly asked to adapt and change in relation to quickly changing trends and current and future users' needs. How do we cultivate these trends to improve and/or create better services that meet the challenges we face today and tomorrow?
Participants are invited to submit proposals for breakout presentations, posters show and tell for our poster session, and lightning talks. Breakouts are a full one hour presentation. Posters show and tell will last an hour. Lightning talks are approximately 6-15 minutes in length where each presenter speaks one after another. Questions and answers follow the end of the breakout session presentation and the end of all the lightning talks but occur throughout the poster session.
The deadline for proposal submission is midnight on February 2, 2014:
