CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

SustainRT Lightning Rounds Event

Deadline to submit: Monday, April 4, 2016

Do you have a sustainability-related library story to tell?

 

ALA’s Sustainability Round Table (SustainRT) is looking for people to share their sustainability-related library projects during its program at ALA Annual 2016 in Orlando.

 

Format: Presenters will have five minutes each to tell their story, with follow-up questions at the end of the program. Presenters may opt to use one fixed image (electronic or otherwise) as part of their presentation. The program will be held at ALA Annual on Sunday, June 26th from 10:30-11:30AM.

Eligibility: Anyone may submit a proposal, though preference will be given to SustainRT members.

Purpose: To share creative and important work that contributes to a more resilient, harmonious and holistic community through economic, environmental and social aspects of sustainability work being done in libraries of all kinds.  We are seeking a diverse representation of innovative sustainability projects that go beyond the traditional “greening” of libraries.

To submit a proposal, send an email to Jason Nosek <jnosek <at> chipublib.org> with the following:

– Name
– Institution or organization
– Phone
– Email
– SustainRT member Y/N
– Title of your presentation
– Description of the presentation you are proposing to make
– Brief statement telling us what excites you about your topic and/or the sustainability movement within the library profession

Proposals are due by Monday, April 4, 2016.
