Call For Proposals
The Planning Committee of the Library Association of the City University of New York (LACUNY) invites you to submit a proposal for a presentation at LACUNY 2006 Institute on May 19, 2006 at Baruch College.
Institute Theme: Information Commons: Are We All Things to All People? The Information Commons is a reconfigured physical space that offers a host of services beyond reference, print materials and computer access: multimedia laboratories, technical support, video conferencing, and information consultations. We are seeking individuals who can present a refreshing perspective on developing an information commons; highlighting the success, opportunities and challenges of information commons on students, academic faculty, librarians and the college community as a whole. In addition to our Keynote speakers and panel discussion, we are planning to have eight 60-minute Breakout sessions that will further engage our audience with the breadth of issues surrounding Information Commons. Below are suggested topic areas but all ideas will be considered:
In order to be considered for a breakout session, please submit a one-page abstract of your presentation along with a brief bio – including technical requirements – by Friday, February 24, 2006 to Institute Co-Chairs:
