Call for presenters for Fall AAAL meeting

The Alberta Association of Academic Libraries (AAAL) Fall 2019 meeting will take place on Friday, November 15, 2019 at Augustana Campus Library, University of Alberta in Camrose, Alberta.  

We are interested in hearing from AAAL members’  work along the theme of international. This could include work in expanding collections in other languages and related to the International Year of Indigenous Languages, working with English as an Additional Language (ESL) students, supporting international students in the library, providing professional development for staff, or building anti-racist workshops for students. 

While we invite staff from AAAL member libraries to submit a proposal to share your experiences, research, and lessons learned along this theme, we are open to any other work you are open to sharing at this 

professional learning and sharing event. What new program, service, or space are you/your library providing to your users?  What technologies or tools are you using to improve how you, your library, or your users get things done?

Presentation can be either: 

  • 5 minute lightning talk that is a quick overview of your ideas, experience, and programs/services OR 
  • 30 minute session that can include ideas, experiences, original research, engaging discussion questions or activities


We look forward to hearing from you! 


The AAAL Workshop Committee: Angie Mandeville, Jessica Leslie, and Leeanne Morrow
