Call for Proposals: First National Personal Librarian & First Year Experience Library Conference
Proposals are now being accepted for the First National Personal Librarian & First Year Experience Library Conference, a 2-day event focused on all aspects of the first year experience and the personalization of outreach and services for incoming students. The conference will be hosted by Kelvin Smith Library at Case Western Reserve University.
When: April 7-8, 2014
Where: Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH

The inaugural conference will focus on starting library initiatives to support first year students, assessing outcomes of services and resources, and building the collaborative relationships throughout the organization to prepare a holistic approach to student success and retention.
The two days will feature 1-2 keynotes and/or panel discussions, surrounded by a number of concurrent sessions organized around proposed tracks of interest. Participants are welcomed from all types of organizations and levels of staffing. Programming will be offered to improve established programs or prepare for a new initiative.
We are accepting proposals for 45-minute concurrent sessions organized by tracks, 1½-hour panel discussions, and poster presentations. We welcome all proposals for consideration.
