Call for Proposals 

Learner-Centered Librarianship

The Florida Chapter of ACRL (FACRL) is seeking proposals for presentations and poster sessions for the 2018 FACRL Annual Conference exploring “Learner-Centered Librarianship” in academic libraries through and beyond instruction programs. Learning involves both content and resources, as well as information processes such as information seeking with connection to all aspects of library work and service models. As academic libraries increasingly shift focus to learner-centered programming, collections, pedagogy and practices, an opportunity has arisen to rethink our roles in relation to the learning experience.  The 2018 FACRL conference will allow for reflection, planning, and development in this growing area.  The annual conference will be held on Friday, October 19, at the Florida Gulf Coast University Cohen Center Ballroom in Fort Myers, FL.

Proposals are due by June 30, 2018. Follow this link to the submission form.

Presentations should be 45 minutes in length with additional time provided for questions. Follow this link to the rubric that will be used to score proposals. Acceptance emails will be sent on or before July 28, 2018.

Presentations and posters may address the following, but all proposals relevant to learner-centered librarianship will be considered:

Presentations and posters of superior quality may be considered for future publication in The Reference Librarian, a major refereed journal published by Taylor and Francis. Consider reviewing the Instructions for Authors to learn about the expectations of content and writing for this peer-reviewed journal.
