CALL FOR PARTICIPATION—from the Juniata-Conemaugh Chapter of PaLA

Inspire your colleagues with presentations and posters at the annual workshop on May 13, 2016. This year, we will meet at the beautiful American Philatelic Center in Bellefonte, PA. The focus of this year’s workshop is:

Connect & Reconnect: Transforming Our Profession.

Changes and trends can influence how we plan, promote, and support our patrons, collections, and libraries. Tell us how you and your colleagues are transforming your employees, spaces, collections and instruction. We invite presentations and posters that reflect one of the elements of the workshop:

  • Employees- How do you empower, support and educate your staff and librarians?
    Social Media & Technology – What is “hot” in libraries that you are using?
  • Collection Development – How do you share and weed your collections?
  • Outreach & Marketing – What programs do you offer to children, adults, students, and faculty?
  • Assessment -What and how you assess, and what do you do with your data and statistics?

Presentation Guidelines: 30 minutes plus 10 minutes for Q&A. You will have access to a computer, projector and wireless.

Poster Guidelines: Dimensions: 3 feet X 4 feet
The best poster will receive a prize! Posters will be judged on information and visual impact.

Please send a working title of your presentation/poster, a 300-word maximum synopsis of the presentation/poster, and a 150-word maximum biography.
Send your submission to: Alessia Zanin-Yost,

Deadline for submission: March 4, 2016, at 5:00pm
