Call for Speakers for the 2013 Big Talk From Small Libraries online conference

Do you have a program or service in your small library that other librarians might like to hear about? Have you implemented a new (or old) technology, hosted an event, partnered with others in your community, or just done something really cool? The Big Talk From Small Libraries online conference can give you the opportunity to share what you’ve done and learn what your colleagues in other small libraries are doing. 

Big Talk From Small Libraries got such a great response last year that we’re doing it again. This free one-day online conference is aimed at librarians from small libraries; the smaller the better.

For Big Talk From Small Libraries 2013, we’re looking for seven 50-minute presentations and five 10-minute “lightning round” presentations.

Big Talk From Small Libraries 2013 will be held on Thursday, February 28, 2013 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (CT) via the GoToWebinar online meeting service. Speakers will be able to present their programs from their own desktops. The schedule will accommodate speakers’ time-zones.

If you are interested in presenting, please submit your proposal via the online form at http://nlcblogs.nebraska.gov/bigtalk/call-for-speakers/ by Friday, January 11, 2013. Speakers from libraries serving fewer than 10,000 people will be preferred, but presentations from libraries with larger service populations will be considered.
