It's been a while since we've attended an ALA-annual conference. The 2019 ALA-annual was our last one, in fact. Now, three years later (it's felt both longer and shorter than 3-years, hasn't it?!) - we're back! And we're looking for guest presenters at our booth!
Learning From Each Other
The whole point of attending conferences is to learn from others. To get inspired by what they're doing and see if you can replicate it at your institution. But of the hundreds of presentation proposals submitted, a conference can only select a fraction for their available time slots. Additionally, not everyone from every institution can even attend the ALA-annual conference. We hate to see anyone #alaleftbehind, so we're doing Facebook live-streamed presentations at our Springshare booth straight from the exhibit hall. If you're attending the conference, join us at booth #2639. If you're #alaleftbehind, watch selected sessions streaming live on our Facebook page! You don't need a Facebook account to watch Springshare videos, simply ignore the prompts to log in and enjoy the live-streaming presentations on our Facebook page.
Presenting at Springshare's Booth!
Before we get that schedule up and live - we need some guest speakers! So, if you're attending the ALA-annual conference (or even if you're not - we can provide an exhibit-hall only guest pass, just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org), submit a proposal to present at Springshare's booth. Presentations are short, just 10-15minutes in length, and can be done with 1-2 guest speakers.
We're looking for presenters who are:
- Doing interesting and innovative things with Springshare Tools;
- Involving patrons with content creation, analysis, or planning;
- Embarked on a Springshare Tool redesign and want to share the process/outcome;
- Using a Springshare Tool to better inform decision;
- Engaging and communicating with patrons in effective ways;
- .... and really anything at all!
We respect your time and effort!
We understand that crafting a presentation and taking time out of your conference schedule takes effort. And to that end, we are providing honoraria to selected presenters in the form of a gift-card.
Submit a Proposal!
To submit your presentation proposal, fill out the contact information below and select ALA 2022 - In-person under Presentation Type.
We hope to see you there! Don't forget, if you're not attending, we'll be posting our conference presentation schedule in the coming weeks so you can join us in spirit by watching the Facebook live-stream.
