Change and Continuity
A Conference for Students and Beginning Professionals on Archives, Rare Books, and Special Collections
Saturday, March 6, 2010
Indiana University’s student chapter of the Society of American Archivists is proud to announce our second conference for students and beginning professionals, to be held on Saturday, March 6, 2010 at the Lilly Library in Bloomington, Indiana.
If you are a student in a library science, archives, or rare books program or have entered the profession within the previous three years, we invite you to submit your papers on topics related to archives, rare books, or special collections for presentation at the conference. In addition to paper sessions, the day-long conference will include workshops and a tour of the Lilly Library, Indiana University’s rare books and manuscripts library.
Each paper session will be just under an hour and will include two presenters. Each presenter will have approximately 20 to 25 minutes to speak, and the session will conclude with a ten to fifteen minute period for questions and answers.
To be considered as a presenter, please submit your paper (or, if your paper is not yet complete, an abstract of 150 to 200 words and a working title) to email@example.com by Friday, January 1, 2010. Along with your paper or abstract, please include your name, email address, institutional affiliation, and any audio/visual needs you may have.
The papers will be discussed and voted on in a blind judging process and you will receive an acceptance or rejection by the middle of January. If you have only submitted an abstract, your acceptance will be conditional. You will be required to submit the completed paper by mid-February to have your acceptance finalized.
If your paper is accepted, you will be sent a more detailed registration form. At this time, you will also be asked to submit a registration fee of $15 to cover your breakfast and lunch. More details about meals, accommodations available in Bloomington, etc. will also be provided at this time.
