CFP - ACRL 2013

ACRL 2013: Cyber Zed Shed Call for Proposals Are you a tech savvy librarian using new technologies in innovative ways to help your students and faculty? Adapting existing technologies to reach user needs? Here is an opportunity to share your innovations with your colleagues, library administrators, and others at ACRL 2013 in Indianapolis. The Cyber Zed Shed Committee is looking for proposals that document technology-related innovations in every area of the library. Cyber Zed Shed presentations provide an opportunity to share ideas that can inspire your colleagues to incorporate a new technology in their library or find a new application for an existing technology to address new and old problems in various library environments: teaching in a classroom providing answers to questions from patrons acquiring, cataloging, processing or preserving materials providing other library services Cyber Zed Shed presentations are 20 minutes, with 15 minutes to present a demonstration, and five additional minutes for audience questions. Presentations should document technology-related innovations in academic and research libraries. A computer, data projector, screen, microphone, and stage will be provided. You will be responsible for bringing all other equipment required for your demonstration, except as agreed to in advance. We invite you to submit your most innovative proposals. Submissions are due by November 9, 2013 and may be submitted via the online form available in the Call for Participation. http://www.google.com/url?q=http%3A%2F%2Fconference.acrl.org%2Fprogram-pages-166.php&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNE-FUgfX7LtGjjmbJ1N6Bem3dDudw Questions should be directed to Margot Conahan at mconahan@ala.org or call (312) 280-2522.
