2020 NC LIVE Annual Conference: Session Proposal Form

Theme: The Power of Us
Libraries collaborate every day, working together to solve problems, enhance services, and support our communities. Across departments, libraries, and consortia, when we work together we can accomplish much more than when we work alone. In sundry ways, North Carolina libraries demonstrate the power of collective engagement, coordinated action, and shared resources. Examples include:

Partnering with affinity organizations
Initiating diversity, equity, and inclusion practices
Forming innovative resource sharing agreements
Launching collective offsite storage programs
Reaching out to new communities
Creating community-based programming

Our 2020 theme, The Power of Us, celebrates the collective potential of our 205 member libraries to enact change, innovate, find solutions, and persevere in the face of challenges.

Call for Proposals
We invite librarians, library staff, community partners, scholars, and students to share your research and creative endeavors with your colleagues at the NC LIVE Annual Conference. While we encourage proposals that feature NC LIVE resources and services, please note that we give equal consideration to proposals not specific to NC LIVE. Special attention will be given to submissions that exhibit efforts related to:

Partnering with affinity organizations
Initiating diversity, equity, and inclusion practices
Forming innovative resource sharing agreements
Launching collective offsite storage programs
Reaching out to new communities
Creating community-based programming
Session Formats
We are accepting three types of proposals for the 2020 conference. Each will be 50 minutes:

Presentation: This is the traditional conference session. Presenters will deliver engaging content for 40 minutes and allow 10 minutes for audience Q&A.

Peer-guided Roundtables: This is a more informal opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas, discuss best practices, and network with peers working on similar projects. Facilitators will present for 10-15 minutes and lead 35-40 minutes of structured discussion around a topic of their choice.

Panel: This session format offers 2-5 presenters the opportunity to share practical experiences, discuss innovative projects and fresh approaches to library issues, or critically reflect on a topic.
