2022 Annual Conference Call for Proposals

The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) conference planning committee invites you to submit proposals for the 48thAnnual Conference, The Tipping Point: Initiating Change in Academic Libraries.

As libraries challenge long-standing traditions and question our neutral stance, small changes or incidents often result in greater consequences. Share with your colleagues your programs, stories, and examples of defining, transformational moments in your libraries. Conference Date: November 3-4, 2022 Conference Location: Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center, Lewis Center, Ohio Submission Deadline:  April 15, 2022 Call for Proposals: https://www.alaoweb.org/conferences/2022/proposals  Submission Form: https://tinyurl.com/alao2022submissions 
We encourage thoughtful, timely proposals from all areas of library work. Adherence to the conference theme is encouraged but not required. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Barriers to accessing information
  • Censorship Crisis management
  • DEI in Information Literacy Instruction
  • Emerging technology solutions
  • Inclusive cataloging and collections
  • Libraries as space/third space
  • Misinformation
  • Service changes/transitions
One proposal form will be used for all presentation types:
  • Presentation (or other 50-minute session)
  • Poster Session
  • Lightning talk (brief live session)
If you have a unique format idea, not listed above, please submit it under the presentation option (Panel discussions, etc… ) We invite you to contribute your ideas to make 2022 the best ALAO conference yet.
