Call for Proposals for the 2022 Calgary Libraries in Action

The Call for Proposals for the 2022 Calgary Libraries in Action (CLIA) is open until the end of day Monday April 11, 2022. Proposals submitted after April 11 will be considered to present provided there is available time. CLIA focuses on prominent issues and topics for libraries and information workers and students in Calgary and the surrounding communities.

Proposal submissions are welcome from library and information students and workers from Calgary and surrounding areas. Each presentation will be limited to 15 minutes in length with 5 minutes for Q&A. Pre-recorded presentations are also acceptable.

What new exciting projects have you and your colleagues undertaken? Have you recently been faced with a dilemma, and developed a unique solution to solve it? What new initiatives have you started in regards to programming, staffing, collections, spaces, policy and/or services?

There will be four streams available for presentations:

  • Library student presentations (LIT course or project showcase)

  • Academic Libraries

  • Public & School Libraries

  • Special Libraries (including museums, archives, galleries, or corporate libraries)

  • Other (anything else library-related!)

Successful proposals will receive email confirmation by April 19th with more details.

You can submit your proposals here. If you have any questions, please send them to rsvp@fla.org

Feel free to forward this call to other potentially interested colleagues/groups.
