ALAO 2014: Call for Proposals Extended

The submission deadline for full-length sessions
has been extended to June 9, 2014.

The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Conference Planning Committee invites you to submit proposals for the 40th Annual Conference, which will take place on November 13-14, 2014 at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Sandusky, OH.

Presentations may take the form of contributed papers, demonstrations, workshops, research results, panel discussions, etc. Applicants are encouraged to develop sessions that show thoughtful consideration of this year’s conference theme, “Engagement, advocacy and outreach: Empowering our communities,” which seeks to explore how academic libraries and librarians empower our communities in all the ways that we do. We would love to learn about your ideas, experiences, solutions, and best practices – even those that yielded results that were different than expected!

Submit your proposal online @

Presenter grants ALAO encourages library support staff and library student growth, career development, and participation in conference activities, and awards two presenter grants, one for support staff and the other for students. These grants (up to $150 each) are intended to assist with the costs incurred in preparing the presentation and modest travel costs associated with the presentation. Visit the conference web site for additional information.

Please note that only presenters of full-length sessions and posters selected for inclusion in the conference will be eligible for final consideration for the grant.
