The Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest Group seeks facilitators
for roundtable discussions during its meeting at ALA 2016 on Sunday, June
26, from 1:00-2:30. We especially encourage submissions from facilitators
who might be interested in leading discussions related specifically to
issues for Public Libraries, as these have been requested in past meetings
but few have submitted proposals related to this area. Of course, we always
welcome proposals addressing issues for all kinds of libraries.
Housed within the Association for Library Collections and Technical
Services division of ALA, the Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest
Group was created to provide a forum to discuss issues related to the
evolution of technical services. The group is especially interested in
exploring the interdependency between departments and the ways in which
technical services affects, and is affected by, technology and publishing
Roundtable discussions are small, informal group discussions intended to
give participants the opportunity to network, discuss best practices, and
share information. Table size for roundtable discussions is capped at 10
participants per table. Discussion facilitators are responsible for
identifying and developing a topic, creating discussion questions, and
facilitating a discussion at the American Library Association’s Annual
Meeting in Orlando in June 2015. If similar proposals are submitted and
accepted, facilitators may be asked to co-facilitate.
Those interested in participating as a discussion facilitator should submit
a proposal that includes:
1. The topic you wish to explore. Topics should relate to acquisitions,
cataloging and classification, non-MARC metadata creation and remediation,
2. How the topic you wish to explore applies to the evolution of technical
3. Three sample discussion questions.
Please submit your proposal by April 18, 2015 via this form:
Contact Kelly Smith (kelly.smith2 at eku.edu) with any questions.
