Roundtable Discussions

Roundtables are small, informal group discussions that give attendees the opportunity to exchange information, discuss best practices, and network with others around common themes and issues. Discussion facilitator(s) should identify and develop a topic that will allow participants to discuss how they are dealing with specific issues at their libraries. Roundtable discussions are limited to ten individuals per table, including participants and facilitator(s). Individuals submitting roundtable proposals should address the topics to be covered, their importance to academic libraries, and three questions they would use to keep the discussion moving.
