Call for speakers: Business library instruction forum

Call for speakers for the BRASS Forum at the ALA 2014 Conference

The theme for next year’s forum is business library instruction.

Got an idea about what makes a business instruction session work? Share your experiences or research with one shot sessions, collaboration with faculty, course embeds, liaison, roving reference, or other innovative techniques. Special attention given to proposals that focus on assessment or other measurable results.

We are looking for 3-4 panelists. Each panelist will speak for approximately 20 minutes.  We are looking for librarians from any type of library setting, including academic, public, or special (see the abstract below for more details on the forum topic). While we are not able to offer any type of financial compensation, this is a great addition to any librarian’s CV.

Please send nominations (self-nominations welcome) or proposals to Charles Allan,

The Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) represents the subject interests of reference librarians, business information specialists, and others engaged in providing business reference/information services.
