2024 Annual Meeting Call for Proposals

For the first time since 2019, the 2024 TRLN Annual Meeting will be a fully in-person event! On Monday, July 29, we’ll be convening in Chapel Hill, to reunite and regroup in the newly renovated Friday Center. Given that five years have passed since we last met in person, the Annual Meeting Steering Committee is structuring plenty of time and space to gather around timely topics that will help us take stock and chart our course into the future.

We are inviting proposals for three types of sessions:

  1. Presentations (5, 20, or 45 minutes), to inform colleagues about projects and activities, such as a mentoring program, a digitization project, or an exhibition. (You can take advantage of this opportunity to practice presenting for future conferences or professional meetings.)
  2. Workshops (1 or 2 hours), to educate or train colleagues on a particular skill or domain of knowledge, such as copyright, including cataloging, licensing of electronic materials, developing a budget, project management.
  3. Discussions (1 or 2 hours), to engage with colleagues on a timely and relevant topic, such as artificial intelligence, Alma transitions, international area studies and global collections, ASERL professional development retreats, finance and administration, accessibility, library communications.

Submit a proposal by 11:59pm on June 3 at

We encourage proposals from anyone who works in a TRLN member library. Collaborative sessions with colleagues from multiple institutions also are encouraged. 

All submissions will be reviewed by the Annual Meeting Steering Committee and selections will be announced by June 14.
