Dartmouth Library’s October Conference
& Cultivating Community
Friday, October 18, 2013
Second Call for Proposals! (And save the date!!)
Dartmouth Library’s October Conference is seeking proposals for its seventeenth annual meeting, “Making Connections and Cultivating Community.” The day-long event is scheduled for Friday, October 18, 2013, and will be held at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire (an easy two-hour drive from Boston, Springfield, and many other New England locations).
This year’s conference will emphasize the collaborative role that academic libraries can play within their communities. Do you have a story to tell about your library in community? If so, send us a proposal! Examples might include, but are not limited to, establishing interdepartmental or interdisciplinary alliances on campus, fostering partnerships between public and academic libraries, engaging with civic organizations, or making new or non-traditional connections. We’re interested in hearing from academic libraries of all types – community, 4-year, universities, private, public, large, and small.
Proposals should include:
- A brief description, including how you see it fitting in with the overall focus of the conference this year.
- How much time you’ll need (typically 15-30 minutes).
- Contact information for all speakers (e-mail and phone number).
The programs for previous October Conferences are available here.
Please e-mail your proposal to Peggy Sleeth at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30, 2013.
