The ARLIS/NA Mountain West Chapter is now accepting proposals for our Fall virtual conference titled: Testing the Waters: Professional Experimentation in the Arts and Art Librarianship.
In the spirit of experimentation, this virtual conference will be structured differently than others you might have participated in. In order to take full advantage of the virtual forum and to accommodate people’s busy schedules, Testing the Waters will be part asynchronous and part synchronous. Here’s how it will work:
- Presenters will have their talks prerecorded by a member of our chapter and posted to a private site online.
- Conference attendees will be given access to the site and will be able to watch all the presentations at their leisure.
- Each talk will be accompanied by a discussion board for questions and comments.
- Sessions will be recorded in late October and posted in November.
- A live Q&A session will happen in November with all the presenters.
- Each person will have a set amount of time to take and answer questions.
- This session will be moderated by a member of the Mountain West chapter.
- The Q&A Session will be recorded and posted to the site if attendees are unable to watch in real time.
Please consider submitting a proposal and being part of our experiment! We want to hear how you have experimented in your professional lives. Have you tried something new lately that the ARLIS community should hear about? Have you made changes, small or large, in your professional life? Let’s shake off our old habits and try something new together!
