There were lots of great presentations at the ACRL-OR/WA fall conference last week. So many that some of you may have been overwhelmed at the time, and some of us just like to process information more slowly. Here are links to some of those presentations. If you are a presenter and did not yet send your link to me, never fear! you can still send it, and I will add it to this list.

The annual ACRL-Oregon Award for Excellence recognizes an individual or group who achieves excellence in the field by significantly improving Oregon academic libraries or librarianship.
This year’s award winner is The Library User-experience & Assessment Un-Conference (LUAU) team. LUAU is recognized for the team’s positive impact on Oregon libraries by bringing together academic librarians from across the Pacific Northwest.
The LUAU team members include Rick Stoddart (OSU/UI), Donna Reed (PCC), Diane Provak (UI), Frank Haulgren (WWU), Kate Rubick, (L&C), Laura Zeigen (OHSU), Lori Ricgilano (UPS), Meredith Farkas (PSU/PCC), Steve Borellii (WSU), Steve Hiller (UW), and Anya Arnold (Alliance).
LUAU built trust to share library assessment expertise across the Alliance and with non-Alliance members within the Northwest area; identified library assessment experts and projects within the Alliance; and articulated common library assessment priorities in the field.
ACRL-Oregon commends this team for their initiative in pursuing grant money to assist in funding the project, fostering new relationships, and their commitment to potentially regularly holding the un-conference.
LUAU was funded through a grant from the Orbis Cascade Alliance.

You’ve heard of lightning talks. Well, this year at the ACRL OR/WA Annual Joint Conference at Menucha we’re bringing you shock talks – talks that are even shorter, but still pack a punch! You’ll have two minutes and the format is up to you – no slide requirements. Just tell us about something interesting or thought-provoking or important or…shocking (see what we did there) relating to professional identity and technology.
These fast, fun talks will give more people a chance to participate and will allow many more ideas to be thrown into our two-day discussion about professional identity and technology. Whatever part of the library you work in – from library director to paraprofessional to library school student – you have something to add to this discussion and we want to hear from you!
We’re also seeking poster proposals! Have you done some interesting research in your library, created a fantastic outreach program, developed a new technology-related service, or anything else you are excited about and want to share? If so, submitting a poster is a great way to share what you’ve been up to. Your poster can be in traditional poster format or digital.
To submit your idea for a shock talk or a poster, please go to https://ola.memberclicks.net/index.php?option=com_mc&view=mc&mcid=form_174842 and fill out our quick proposal form by Friday, September 19th at 11:59pm. We will review all of the submissions and let you know if you’re in by Friday, October 5th.
P.S. shock talks and posters that are in some way related to the conference theme will be given preference, but you are welcome to propose a talk or poster on any topic your heart desires!
