Libraries have been innovating and evolving towards a new future over the last decade, and the last two years have brought that future right into the now! Reflecting that, the 2022 Conference will explore aspects of ‘library futures’ relating to innovations in services, learning and research, technology, spaces, collections, and staff development. CONUL invites submissions for presentations and posters which address topics including, but not limited to:
The Conference Committee welcomes proposals on the theme and sub-themes which include trends which may shape the future and practical elements of research and academic librarianship. Papers that may not fit into the above topics but relate to the overall theme are equally welcome. We encourage colleagues who are currently harnessing new technologies, reconfiguring onsite and online spaces; responding to and anticipating changing user needs; transforming collections; exploring the staffing considerations in this time of change, to consider abstract submission for the 2022 CONUL Conference.
We are so excited to welcome everyone to our in-person Conference and look forward to meeting you all.
