TRLN is now inviting proposals for presentations and workshops for the 2021 Annual Meeting being held virtually on July 29 and 30.
The deadline to submit a proposal is June 18.
Proposals of up to 150 words should be submitted along with an abbreviated abstract of 50 words that will be included on the annual meeting website.
Who can present?
Anyone who works in a TRLN member institution. We welcome proposals of any domain, area of expertise, and library. We also encourage partnering with colleagues to co-present.
What topics should presentations be about?
We welcome presentations about interesting activities at your institution. Do you have a completed, current, or upcoming project that other attendees might want to hear about or replicate? Working groups and interest groups are encouraged to share updates about their projects and accomplishments.
If you are planning on presenting or leading a workshop at another virtual conference later this year, we also encourage you to present during the annual meeting to share your exciting work and to practice presenting during a virtual conference.
Topics could include, but are not limited to:
- Technologies, infrastructure, and/or vendor relations;
- Inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility projects or programs;
- Collections and resources;
- Policy, legal, and accessibility issues;
- Project management, design, or implementation;
- Education and/or professional development;
- Partnerships with university presses;
- Leadership and management; and
- Implications on our work as a result of COVID-19
How long can presentations be?
Presentations ranging from 5 minute lightning talks, 30 minute presentations, or longer workshops will be considered. Sessions will be grouped into blocks. If you have an idea for a longer workshop, please submit your idea and if selected, TRLN staff can coordinate scheduling this workshop around the same time as the annual meeting.
When will I hear if my proposal has been accepted?
All submissions will be reviewed by the Annual Meeting Steering Committee and selections will be announced by July 2.
Can I pre-record my presentation?
Yes! If you prefer to pre-record your presentation, TRLN staff can work with you to record your presentation and stream it during a scheduled time in the program for attendees. You can also present live and we expect most will do so, but we want to try and accommodate as many presentation preferences as possible. Regardless of presenting live or pre-recording, there will be a live Q&A with the presenters.
