CHICAGO - The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) is now accepting Cyber Zed Shed presentation, poster session, roundtable discussion and Virtual Conference webcast proposal submissions for the ACRL 2013 conference to be held April 10-13, 2013, in Indianapolis. Submit proposals via the ACRL 2013 website by Nov. 9, 2012.

ACRL challenges you to imagine, innovate and inspire your colleagues with proposals that explore the most dynamic and challenging issues and ideas facing academic and research librarians today. Cyber Zed Shed presentations focus on hot new technologies and their use in the library. Poster sessions are a great way to share an innovative library-based project, a best practice to solve a problem or unique research findings. Roundtables are small, informal group discussions that give attendees the opportunity to exchange information, discuss best practices and network with others around common themes and issues. Virtual Conference webcasts are synchronous online presentations allowing presenters to interact with virtual attendees in real-time via audio, video and screen sharing.

Complete details about ACRL 2013, including the full Call for Participation, are available online. Send questions about the Call for Participation or ACRL 2013 to ACRL Conference Supervisor Tory Ondrla at (312) 280-2515 or
