The Winds of Change are constant in academic libraries. Today continuous changes in our users, technology, staff, environments, etc. create challenges and opportunities for libraries. Changes that you are experiencing in your library can lend itself to many great topics for a WAAL presentation, panel, workshop, or poster session. Below are just a few topic areas ideas:
•Methods in training and engaging student workers and staff
•Discovering new methods of outreach and marketing
•Identifying trends in collection development and acquisitions
•Understanding how libraries work together
•Mentoring programs that engage staff and/or students
•Workplace ergonomics

If you are interested in planning or presenting a program related to these suggested topics or another topic of your choice, please draft a brief proposal which details:

1.Abstract of the program (300 words or less)
2.Presenter names(s), institutional affiliation(s), and contact information
3.Format (presentation, panel discussion, poster session, etc.)
4.Equipment needs

Send your programming ideas and suggested speaker names to Sheila Stoeckel sstoeckel@library.wisc.edu by November 16th.
