Call for Proposals
The call for proposals has closed.
The Southeastern Library Assessment Conference provides an opportunity for those interested in advancing the library assessment and user experience conversation to gather together to share and discuss practical ideas and information.
The Southeastern Library Assessment Conference invites session and poster proposals for the November 10-11, 2021, conference presented virtually.
Proposed sessions should be designed to fit within a 45-minute timeframe, including Q&A.
Poster Proposals (New for 2021):
In response to attendee feedback, this year’s conference will include poster presentations. Posters provide an excellent opportunity to share new or in-progress research, discuss an innovative program or project, or highlight a case study. Posters allow authors to share their content visually through a combination of graphics and text which viewers can read at their leisure. Authors will also have the opportunity to interact with conference participants during a live question and answer session.
We encourage thoughtful, timely proposals on any topic related to assessment in libraries of all types, including, but not limited to:
Data ethics and privacy
Developing a culture of assessment
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Impact on student learning, retention, progression, and/or graduation
Industry surveys, e.g., IPEDS, ACRL
Marketing and communications
Role of the assessment librarian
Spaces and facilities
Special collections and archives
