CALL FOR PROPOSALS

CFP: “Hacking Reference: Engaging the 'Whole' Student"
PROPOSAL DEADLINE: 9/26/14

A Hack differs from the ordinary college prank in that the event usually requires careful planning, engineering and finesse, and has an underlying wit and inventiveness… The unwritten rule holds that a hack should be good-natured, non-destructive and safe. In fact, hackers sometimes assist in dismantling their own handiwork.
                                - Randolph Ryan, Boston Globe Reporter

CARLDIG-South is hosting its annual fall program at Mt. San Antonio College on Friday, December 5, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Titled “Hacking Reference: Engaging the 'Whole' Student," this year’s CARLDIG-South program will highlight how academic libraries are “hacking” the provision of reference service through non-traditional means, be it spaces, programming, service learning, marketing, or outreach.

As part of the program’s interactive format and in keeping with CARLDIG-South’s focus, we are seeking proposals from librarians interested in presenting on the above topics as they relate to reference services. Have you implemented a pop-up makerspace in your library to support student learning during finals? Or, have you embarked on a marketing campaign to increase the use of reference services at your library? Perhaps you are involved in other non-traditional projects that affect reference services. If so, CARLDIG-S wants to hear from you!

Presentations will be brief (approximately 10-15 minutes), and presenters will have access to an Internet-equipped computer and a projector. In addition, all presenters will have the opportunity to interact with program participants at a “Reference Faire” scheduled to follow all presentations.

Submitted proposals will be subject to a peer-review process. If you are interested in presenting at this year’s CARLDIG-South “Hacking Reference” program, please e-mail a proposal of no more than 500 words to Suzanne Im, CARLDIG-South Chair, at neathamasque@gmail.com. Submissions from community college librarians are encouraged.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 26, 2014. All individuals submitting proposals will be notified no later than Monday, October 20, 2014.

We appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you!
