The Program Committee for the Midwest Chapter of the Music Library Association is accepting proposals for the Fall Chapter meeting to be held on October 22-23, 2020. After thoughtful consideration and discussion with the meeting hosts, the Executive Committee voted to hold this meeting online via Zoom. The meeting will be free of charge for all attendees. Our original host for this meeting, the University of Kentucky, will receive first pick of a future unclaimed year when we can again meet in person.
While the conference will not have a “theme”, proposals are encouraged that respond to current crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic or protests against racial injustice.
Proposals must include the following:
- A title and abstract describing the subject of the presentation
- Time needed (25, 40, or 55 minutes)
- Format of your presentation (single presenter; panel – indicate whether moderated discussion or group presentation)
- Whether you prefer to present asynchronously (pre-recorded presentation) or synchronously (live-streamed).
Please send all proposals to the Program Committee Chair, Katie Buehner, via Google Form at https://forms.gle/Q9BX2kDX6XtXQeKH7.
The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2020.
We eagerly await your submissions!
