SUNYLA 2016: Convergence: Libraries from Every Direction

Binghamton University, SUNY

June 8-10, 2016

Call for Proposals

Deadline for workshops and presentation proposals EXTENDED: February 12,

Libraries today are situated at a point of convergence: where traditional
and innovative ideas, formats, and practices come together. The SUNYLA 2016
annual conference will explore convergence in academic libraries, including
how we navigate the convergence of print and digital worlds; how we balance
successful methods of the past with the drive to continuously improve our
spaces and services for the future; how all the departments and people
within a library work together to achieve our goals; and how libraries grow
stronger by collaborating with each other. Please join us at Binghamton
University, State University of New York, on June 8–10, 2016, as we
ourselves converge in order to share knowledge and strengthen our libraries.

We invite all SUNY and non-SUNY librarians and staff to submit proposals
for pre-conference workshops and conference presentations in the following


   Reference and Instruction

   Cataloging and Technical Services

   Archives and Special Collections

   Systems and Technology

   Collection Development
