Call for Participation – Reference Renaissance 2010

We just sent out the Call for Participation for the Reference Renaissance 2010 conference, so please look at all the cool things your Adult and/or Youth Services departments are doing and consider submitting a proposal for the August conference by the April 1, 2010 deadline.

We’re looking for reports from the field, panels, demonstrations, and workshops that range in time from a half hour to an hour and a half.  You can also present a research paper or use the really short Pecha Kucha format to discuss your topic.  And later on we’ll make a call for lightning round entries.  Conference tracks include Staffing & Managing User Services; Collaboration, Consortia and Sustainability as well as Virtual Services.  There’s even a Wild Card track for controversial issues or creative and innovative services etc.

Public libraries have responded to the economic turndown in so many helpful ways – but we all need to hear about your ideas and programs.  Tell us what worked and what didn’t and what you’d do differently the next time – don’t keep your brilliant new outreach efforts all to yourself – share the knowledge so we can all make our patrons lives better, without reinventing the wheel.

And if you can’t submit a proposal, remember, the conference is an excellent learning opportunity.  Conference chairs Rivkah Sass and Marie Radford and the planning committee are putting together a great program.
