Information, Innovation, Inspiration - Making the Connection

Academic Library Association of Ohio Annual Conference 2003
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Dublin, OH
November 14, 2003

Call for Presentations

As a resource, gathering place and learning center, today's
library is truly at the heart of the institutions it
serves.  Although the core philosophies have remained
largely unchanged, new situations and demands are forcing
libraries today to rethink their role and transform their
practices. Rising to the challenges of diminishing resources
and escalating costs, libraries continue to provide vital
services using information, innovation and inspiration. How
do we:

    * Justify our value to our campus and community?
    * Promote and market our resources, services and
    * Increase staff satisfaction?
    * Provide development and training opportunities?
    * Effectively connect and communicate with others?
    * Recruit, retain and reward student employees?
    * Creatively implement fundraising initiatives?
    * Enhance outreach and collaboration??
    * Tap into un-mined resources such as Friends groups?

Help us as we explore these issues and others. ALAO invites
you to present your ideas, experiences and views at the 29th
Annual Conference.

Sessions may take the form of contributed papers,
demonstrations, workshops, or panel discussions.

Poster session proposals addressing the conference theme and
presenting innovative ideas, practical solutions, original
research and/or creative approaches to issues and challenges
facing libraries are similarly encouraged.

To encourage support staff participation, the 2003 Program
Planning Committee will sponsor 2-3 support staff that want
to present at the 29th ALAO Annual Conference.

Deadline for Proposals
For presentations: April 25, 2003
For poster sessions: June 30, 2003
