The Program Committee for the Midwest Chapter of the Music Library Association is accepting proposals for the Fall Chapter meeting, October 24-26 in Champaign-Urbana, IL. The Program Committee has adopted the theme, “Creating a Collective: Collaboration and Intersection in Music Librarianship” for this year’s meeting. The Program Committee will consider proposals on any topic, but we are especially interested in proposals that address collaboration across institutions or disciplines, or intersections between music and other arts, music and STEM, or between arts and humanities. For example, proposals that address music activity within a library consortium would fit within the theme.

 

Proposals should include the following:

• A title and abstract describing the subject of the presentation

• Time needed (30, 45, or 60 minutes)

• Format of your presentation (single presenter, panel – indicate whether moderated discussion or group presentation, or poster session)

• Equipment required (projector, audio and/or video, internet connection, etc.)

Please send all proposals to the Program Committee Chair, Michael Duffy, via Google Form at https://forms.gle/x5zRqC3UgCToCXHu6. The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2019. Also, please note that all presenters will be required to register for the Chapter meeting, even if only for a day.
