AAAL Spring 2020 Meeting – Save the Date & Call for Proposals

Please mark your calendars! The Alberta Association of Academic Libraries (AAAL) Spring 2020 meeting and AGM will be held on May 1, 2020 at Red Deer College in Red Deer, Alberta.

AAAL, in its latest incarnation, is 10 years old! We know our AAAL member libraries have been changing right along with us and we want to hear about your work along the theme of Transitions: A Decade of Development. What transitions have you seen in your library over the last decade? What great accomplishments, transitions or developments would you like to share that will inspire your colleagues?

We invite staff from AAAL member libraries to submit a proposal to share your experiences, research, and lessons learned along the conference theme. For this meeting we would also like to invite members to highlight any other work you would like to showcase 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?

Presentations 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

Submit your proposal by Monday, March 23rd. Successful presenters will be contacted between March 30th and April 6th.

Seeking financial support to attend and present at the meeting? We encourage you to apply for an AAAL Professional Development Award.

Wondering how we’ll select sessions? Take a look at our rubric and use it as a guide for your proposal.

We look forward to hearing from you!
