The Michigan Library Association invites proposals to present at “Academic Libraries 2012: Advancing Value,” the association’s third annual two-day event highlighting trends and issues relating to academic libraries, to be held May 10-11, 2012 in Ann Arbor, MI at the Sheraton Ann Arbor Hotel. This event will showcase state and national cutting-edge trends, identify Michigan’s unique issues, and connect academic library staff to their peers and colleagues. The Academic Libraries 2012 Work Group seeks a variety of proposals that will address topics representing the wide-range of professional responsibilities found in academic libraries and those that will introduce new ideas or solutions to the challenges currently facing academic libraries. We encourage broad participation from librarians, staff and administrators from all types of academic libraries (including but not limited to public universities, private colleges, and community colleges). Please submit your program proposal by November 30, 2011. See Call for Proposals Form and Brochure. Proposals received after that date cannot be included in MLA’s Academic Libraries 2012. The Academic Libraries 2012 Work Group will notify proposal contacts of the status of their submission by February 15, 2012.
