Participate at Menucha! Call for lightning talks

Quick!  You have 5 minutes and 20 slides to tell your colleagues from Oregon and Washington academic libraries what you think about the future!  What will you tell them?  Will you outline a dystopic future where Google has implanted a device in our brains, tracking and making available our every thought?  Will you inspire them with a story about how libraries are leading the charge to restore the economy and save democracy?  Maybe you’ll share some thoughts you’ve been having about how a new technology is going to rock our worlds.

The 2010 ACRL OR/WA Annual Joint Conference at Menucha will feature Ignite-style talks presented by conference participants.  These fast, fun lightning talks will give more people a chance to participate and will allow many more ideas to be thrown into our two-day discussion about the future.

We want your ideas for lightning talks!  Our topic is broad — nothing less than the future of academic libraries!  What do you worry about when you think about our future?  What do you hope for?  Are you working on a project that you believe represents some of what the future has to offer us?  We’re looking for a nice mixture of practical, visionary, funny, dire, and inventive.  Wherever you are in the library or your career – from library director to library student – you have something to add to this discussion!

To submit your idea, please go to https://web.memberclicks.com/mc/quickForm/viewForm.do?orgId=ola&formId=76239 and fill out the quick form.  The proposal process is really informal, just tell us your idea!  The ACRL-OR Board will be accepting submissions on a rolling basis until all spots are filled or August 1, 2010. Your early submission will help us plan a better conference!
