Call for Proposals – SLA-SD 2017 Fall Seminar

Library Budgets Today: Making Lemonade from Lemons

This year our focus will be on innovation, progress, initiative, and adaptability when times call for increased creativity. We call for proposals by librarians who have improved their library services, spaces, outreach and marketing, processes, and/or user experiences with innovative techniques, ideas or programs. How does your special, academic, or public library respond to or create opportunities when surprises and challenges arise?

We are looking for presentations that share knowledge and insights about the tools, methods, and skills that help us learn more about ways to optimize challenging situations.  Proposals will be accepted in two formats: Individual/Group Presentation (30-45 minutes) and Lightning Round (5-10 minutes).   Presentations and Lightning Rounds may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:

Partnering for mutual benefit

How did you structure a shared service or work together on a project, creating more than a whole from two halves?

Doing more with more

Share a case where you had a better situation than initially expected and were able to leverage it into a far greater service, program, or facility.

Perseverance, preservation and turn-around stories

How did you prove your value and successfully make a case for your budget?

Alternative service agreement structures

Share your smart shopping, deal making, and no-loser solutions.

Creative technology wins

Open source options that worked for you, ways to leverage technology, and “outside of the box” ideas for systems and/or services.

New funding streams and strategies

Examples of successful crowdfunding, charge-backs, fundraising and/or development partnerships.

 

 

Proposals are accepted from information professionals working in all types of environments; SLA membership is not required. Please include in your proposal submission:

  • Speaker information: Name, affiliation, contact information
  • Description: A title and brief summary of your presentation or Lightning Round topic (up to 500 words)
    • Presentation format – individual speaker, team presentation or panel discussion OR Lightning Round

Presentations should be approximately 30-45 minutes in length for Individual/Group Presentations and 5-10 minutes for Lightning Rounds. Please submit your proposal to us at SLA.SD.FallSeminar@gmail.com by  June 26, 2017. The seminar committee will select presentations by June 30, 2017.

Be sure to save the date for September 29 on your calendar. This year’s seminar will be held at the beautiful California Center for the Arts, Escondido!
