Presentation Types
Please submit your proposal for a Round Table Discussion OR a Lightning Talk.
Round Table Discussion (25 minutes)
Round Tables are small, informal group discussions that give attendees the opportunity to exchange information, discuss best practices, and network with others around common themes and issues. Discussion facilitators identify and develop a topic that will allow participants to discuss how they are dealing with specific issues at their libraries. Your submission should include the Round Table Discussion Topic, as well as several questions to guide the discussion.
Lightning Talk (5 minutes, 3 minutes for Q&A)
A Lightning Talk is a short presentation followed by a brief Q&A. Presenters may use slides or not. Lightning Talks should serve as an inspiration for further investigation.
