DO YOU HAVE A SUSTAINABILITY-RELATED LIBRARY STORY TO TELL?

ALA's new Sustainability Round Table (SustainRT) is looking for people to share their sustainability-related library projects during its kickoff program at ALA Annual 2014 in Las Vegas.

Format: Presenters will have five minutes to present, with follow up questions at the end of the program. Presenters may use one fixed image (electronic or otherwise) as part of their presentation (or none at all). The program will be held at ALA Annual on Sunday June 29th from 1:00-2:30PM.

Eligibility: Anyone may submit a proposal, though preference will be given to SustainRT members.

Purpose: The purpose of the Lightning Rounds is to share creative and important work that contributes to a more resilient, harmonious, and holistic community through economic, environmental, and social aspects of sustainability work being done in libraries of all kinds.  We are seeking a diverse representation of innovative sustainability projects that go beyond the traditional "greening" of libraries.

To submit a proposal, send an email to Madeleine Charney at mcharney@library.umass with answers to the following questions:
Name
Title
Institution or organization
Phone
Email
SustainRT member Y/N
Title of your presentation
Description of the presentation you are proposing to make
Brief statement telling us what excites you about your topic and/or the sustainability movement within the library profession

PROPOSALS DUE BY WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2014.
