Pre-Call: OLA 2016 Proposals due September 30th

Heads up! The deadline for OLA 2016 conference proposals will be September 30th!

This is a “pre-call” because we don’t have the submission form up just yet but we’ll have that linked at our 2016 Conference website when it’s ready.

The 2016 conference theme is “Tell Your Story”. Proposal descriptions are typically limited to 100 words. The hashtag is #ORLib16.

This year we’re trying something different. In the past, presenters had to be sponsored by an OLA division or roundtable. But how do you know which OLA unit to choose? And since most conference sessions don’t have a cost, what is the sponsorship for?

So this year we are encouraging you, our dear members, to submit your ideas directly — no sponsorship required. We still welcome proposals from OLA units, as well. Sessions can be presentations, panels, or workshops. If your session idea does have any associated costs, it will still need a sponsoring OLA unit.

So get those ideas generating and ready to go! More details coming soon.
