Preconferences

Preconferences are half-day or full-day programs that focus on a particular subject of interest to academic and research librarians. These programs should allow participants to develop a skill on a specific topic and should focus on interactive learning using a variety of presentation styles. Preconferences that offer practical tips and cutting-edge techniques, as well as programs that address one or more of the conference's themes, are especially encouraged. Preconferences have separate registration fees, so please contact Margot Conahan at ACRL (312-280-2522; mconahan@ala.org) during the development of your proposal in order to develop a budget for your session.
