SPECIAL LIBRARY SECTION
2013 KLA SLS/ALS and SLA KY Chapter Joint Conference
|Proposals for mini-sessions and poster sessions are now being accepted for the KLA (Kentucky Library Association) Academic and Special Library Sections and SLA (Special Libraries Association) Kentucky Chapter's 2013 Joint Spring Conference. The Conference will take place March 20-22, 2013 at the Barren River Lake State Resort Park in Lucas, Kentucky. In order to enhance the educational offerings of the 2013 JSC, programming will begin at 1pm (Central Time) on Wednesday March 20 and end at Noon on Friday March 22, giving you two full days of sessions and networking opportunities.
The theme for this year's conference is "Can You Hear Me Now? Communicating With Our Users." Proposals addressing the theme in some fashion will receive preference from the committee. The mini-sessions will be 45 minutes long.
The JSC Planning Committee will also accept poster session submissions. The Committee believes this addition to the program will provide an opportunity for all members, including those who may be new to the profession, to become involved by sharing ideas, interesting topics, research in progress, and new areas of technology in a more informal setting. The poster session will take place Wednesday evening, March 20, during the Welcoming Social beginning at 5:30pm.
The deadline to submit a proposal is October 31, 2012. Notification of accepted proposals will take place by November 30, 2012. Please share this information with colleagues and other interested parties who may not otherwise see this announcement.
Conference registration will open on Monday January 7. Early registration will end on February 28 and late registration will end on March 15. No onsite registrations will be accepted. More information will be posted to the conference website (http://kentucky.sla.org/2012/09/2013-joint-spring-conference/) soon.
Reservations for lodge rooms and cabins need to be made by phone call (1- 800-325-0057), not online, to the park. Please mention “KLA” or “Kentucky Library Association” to get the conference rate ($64.95/night for lodge rooms, $129.95 or $139.95/ for cabins/villas).
We look forward to reviewing your proposal! Please let me know if you have any questions!
