Seguimos Creando Enlaces Proposals 2019
The 2019 Seguimos Creando Enlaces Conference committee is calling for proposals. The title of the conference is “Seguimos Creando Enlaces: Librarians as Educators – Impacting the Underserved.” March 14, 2019 will take place at San Diego Central Library in San Diego, CA with the morning sessions live streamed to a satellite site at Fresno Public Library and March 15, 2019 will take place in Tijuana, Mexico. The conference will explore the many ways public and academic libraries educate their communities, particularly in reaching out to underserved groups who might not have equal information access or a safe forum to voice their needs.

As always, we welcome an emphasis on partnerships with other libraries, sister cities, cultural institutions, and/or community-based organizations. If your library or academic institution has a particular collection, program, or unique approach on:

1) Supporting the educational goals of binational, immigrant or refugee communities


2) Connecting multi-language library users to current services in your community


3) Creative and impactful approaches to reach underserved communities.

Here are some keywords to inspire you: LGBTQIA+, social justice, inclusion, mental and emotional health outreach, immigrant, refugee, indigenous, multi-generational, undocumented, first-generation graduate, information literacy, engagement, intersectionality, pedagogy, critical libraries (#critlib), marginalized communities, language barriers, accessibility, relationships, knowledge, skills, sanctuary, unheard stories, shared humanity.

Please fill out the application form which can be found at: by Wednesday, October 24, 2018. A hotel stipend may be available for those presenters who live outside of San Diego County.

Thank you!
