The planning committee for the 2009 VALE Users’/ACRL-NJ/NJLA-CUS Conference – marking the VALE consortium’s 10th Anniversary – is pleased to announce our initial call for breakout and poster session proposals. The Conference will be held on Friday, January 9, 2009, at the Busch Campus Center on the Piscataway Campus of Rutgers University.
This year’s theme is “Ten Years of Experience, A Future of Possibilities.” The Planning Committee welcomes proposals highlighting initiatives for the practice of academic librarianship informed by lessons learned from past experience, research, or the input of your user communities. Proposals that emphasize and illustrate meaningful continuities or contrasts between past and present/future practice are particularly encouraged.
Please find the details for both breakout and poster session proposals, including all requirements and contact information, here:
