Call for Proposals:

The Inside Out Library

 Transformations are happening both inside today’s libraries and out in surrounding communities. Keeping faithful users happy, while attracting non-users, is a challenge we need to meet in order to keep our libraries robust and vital.

 The Oregon Library Association Conference Committee is looking for program
and pre-conference proposals for the 2014 Conference – The Inside Out Library –  to be held at the Salem Convention Center in Salem, April 16-18.  The conference committee is especially seeking programs that relate to innovation, transformation and outreach.

At this point the program does not have to be fully organized; you can give
us a general idea of the program and speakers (if known), and fill in the
other details asked on the proposal form.  Each program or pre-conference
must be sponsored by an OLA unit, but if you have great program idea and
don’t have a sponsor, the Program Committee will attempt some matchmaking.
Proposals are due by September 23.

Contact Judith Norton, Conference Program Committee chair, if you have
questions ( or 971-207-9735).
