PaLA College & Research Division Seeks Presentation Proposals

January 26, 2017

Call for Proposals Extended:

The Pennsylvania Library Association’s College and Research Division seeks presentation proposals from academic librarians that showcase the ways libraries and librarians are involved in digital scholarship (or Digital Humanities) for its May 25, 2017 Spring Workshop to be held in Lewisburg, PA. The goal of this workshop is for academic librarians to understand how they can have a role in supporting and promoting digital scholarship across disciplines, and to come away with ideas they can implement in their own libraries. Projects presented need not be humanities-related. Priority will be given to proposals discussing projects implemented successfully on a shoestring budget or with grant funding.


  • Presentations should be no longer than 10 minutes (there will be 5 minutes between presentations for questions)

  • Presentations must have a “digital scholarship in libraries/with librarians” focus

  • Presentations should be widely applicable (most academic libraries could replicate)

Required Proposal Info:

  1. Title of presentation
  2. One paragraph description of project
  3. Presenter names and contact info
  4. Anticipated technology needs
  5. Estimated setup and presentation time

Submission Instructions:

Submit proposals by email to by Wednesday, March 5th at 5pm.

Questions can be submitted to Jill Hallam-Miller, CRD Vice Chair, at
