    The University Libraries and College Libraries Sections invite proposals for our 2011 ALA Annual Conference Program:

    Academic Librarian Lightning Round! Innovative New Roles

    Innovative College and University Librarians are increasingly assuming new academic, governance, professional, and service roles and responsibilities. By forging new pathways and partnerships, academic librarians can reassert the centrality of the library in their colleges and universities, and expand their expertise to benefit the core missions of their library and their institution. This fast-paced program features a variety of Lighting Talk presentations (also known as Pecha Kucha presentations) that dive right to the heart of the issue and engage the audience.

    RULES: 5 minute presentation, 20 slides, 15 seconds per slide


    Proposals should include a title and 75-word description of the presentation. They can be submitted here:

    Proposals will be due SEPTEMBER 15, 2010.

    Notifications of acceptance will be made by November 1, 2010.

    For more information, please contact Catherine Doyle,
