Mark your calendars! The Alberta Association of Academic Libraries (AAAL) Fall 2022 Meeting will take place November 24 2022 and will be hosted virtually by the Association. The meeting will begin at 9:00 am and conclude in the afternoon; a meeting link and further information will be forthcoming.
We are forgoing a theme this year in favour of an open call for presentations on the work of academic libraries in Alberta. Do you have a new initiative at your library? A research project on the go or near completion? A message to spread to your colleagues across the province? We invite proposals that are related to the work we do in academic libraries in Alberta.
Proposals can be for either a:
- 5 minute lightning talk that is a quick overview of your ideas, experience, and programs/services,
- 20 to 30 minute presentation that can include ideas, experiences, original research, engaging discussion questions or activities.
Submit your proposal by Friday, October 21. Successful presenters will be contacted within the following week.
Do you require financial support to present at the meeting? We encourage you to apply now for an AAAL Professional Development Award, whose scope has extended to be inclusive of technological peripheral support. PD Award applications are due Thursday, November 3.
Wondering how we’ll select sessions? Take a look at our Rubric for Selecting AAAL Sessions and use it as a guide for your proposal.
We look forward to hearing from you!
