WPWVC ACRL call for proposals for spring 2015 conference

March 16, 2015

The WPWVC/ACRL Program Committee is accepting proposals for our Spring Conference program – Creating Connections – at Clarion University (Clarion, Pa.) on June 5, 2015.

WPWVC is the Western Pennsylvania West Virginia Chapter of the Association of College & Research Libraries.

Types of sessions:

  • In-depth presentations (45 minutes)
  • Lightning round talks (10 minutes)
  • Posters – by graduate students only

The success and sustainability of 21st-century academic libraries will ultimately depend on the networks and relationships we build. Have you created connections through specialized outreach efforts, liaison programs, collaborative projects, online communities, digital collections or in some other way?  Share the details with your peers in a 45-minute presentation or give a brief overview in a lightning round talk. Student presenters are invited to participate in the poster session.

While proposals related to the program theme will receive a higher priority, all topics related to academic libraries are welcomed and encouraged.

Please submit a proposal (max. 150 words) at by April 3, 2015.

Notifications of acceptance will be made by April 10, 2015, after a blind peer-review process. All selected presenters will receive a reduced conference registration rate.

Questions about presentations and submissions may be directed to the Program Committee <>.

The WPWVC/ACRL Program Committee: David Kupas (chair; University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown), Lori Hostuttler (co-chair; West Virginia University), Brad Coffield (Saint Francis University), Leslie Eibl (University of Pittsburgh), James Maccaferri (Clarion University), and Heather Ricciuti (Bethany College.)
