OLAC Conference: Call for Proposals
Planning to attend the OLAC Conference in Richmond? We want to hear from you at the conference! Please consider volunteering to serve as a panelist, poster presenter, roundtable facilitator, or lightning-talk speaker.
To volunteer or submit a proposal, please complete the proposal form by September 11, 2017:
Linked Data Initiatives Panel
Is your library engaged in a linked data project, or taking steps to prepare for eventual linked data implementation? OLAC wants to hear from you! The OLAC Conference Committee is seeking several speakers for a Linked Data Initiatives panel. The panel will be held Saturday, October 28, from 8:45-10:00 AM. Panelists will have 10 minutes each to share their institution's linked data work, followed by discussion with audience members. OLAC encourages proposals from anyone involved in a linked data project, no matter whether the project is large or small, complete or just beginning.
To volunteer as a panelist, please submit a brief summary (2-3 sentences) of the linked data work you would like to present, along with your name and email address.
OLAC's poster sessions offer a chance to share innovative projects and research relevant to AV, music, cartographic, and electronic resources cataloging with your OLAC peers. Poster sessions will be held Friday, October 27, from 3:45-5:00 PM.
To submit a poster session proposal, please submit a brief abstract of your poster, along with your name and email address.
Collaborative Problem Solving Roundtables
Have a nagging AV cataloging problem, or a larger cataloging/metadata issue you'd like to discuss with a small group of colleagues in a low-pressure, informal setting? Consider serving as a facilitator for OLAC's Collaborative Problem Solving roundtables, to be held Sunday, October 28, from 9:00-11:00 AM. Table facilitators will provide brief information on the problem or issue, and prepare a short list of questions to shape the discussion at their table.
To volunteer as a roundtable facilitator, please submit your roundtable topic, along with your name and email address.
OLAC's lightning talks offer an opportunity for short (5-7 minute) presentations on any topic of interest to OLAC members. Share a cataloging project, a workflow innovation, or preliminary research -- the sky is the limit! Lightning talks will be held Saturday, October 27, from 4:30-5:30 PM.
To submit a lightning talk proposal, please submit a brief description of your proposed talk, along with your name and email address.
