The Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Association for Instructional Technology invite proposals for panels, workshops and meetings for the Georgia Libraries Conference. This year, the conference will be held at the Macon Marriott City Center in Macon, Georgia on October 9-11, 2019.
Our theme this year is “Building Better Together.”
Libraries strive to offer the best foundation of services, facilities and resources to their patrons. Our communities benefit when we are able to work together: whether across departments, library types or with other organizations. Working together, libraries and their partners, whether in the academic, public, school or special environments, are able to build better services, facilities and resources.
The theme, “Building Better Together” includes community-driven projects, such as library renovations, partnerships, outreach, new programming and services. It can also include innovative collection building with digitization, open-access repositories, e-books, e-journals and print resources. “Building Better Together” also describes shifts in librarianship caused by technology and other influences. Moreover, it can include enhancing services to meet the needs of the Library communities. We encourage our presenters to think of all of the ways this theme can apply to their libraries and interests.
Pre-conference sessions will be scheduled between 9 AM and 4 PM on Wednesday, October 9, 2019. Conference sessions, demonstrations/vendor updates, poster presentations and meetings will be scheduled at various times during the conference days of Wednesday, October 9 through Friday, October 11. Changes will not be made to schedules once proposals are selected and the program is set.
