ALIA SA 2015 Symposium

Event description

Open to library and information professionals across the sector, the ALIA SA Symposium is a one day event to bring together the SA community to learn from each other in a collegial environment.

This event aims to demystify and inform library and information professionals about the process of conference presentations: Learn about the peer-review process, abstract submissions, confidence-boosting tips for presenting and much more!

Call for contributions

The ALIA SA Symposium is all about our local library community. We especially welcome presentations that give a local flavour or offer a local solution to a universal problem.

Does your library have a new program that has been implemented? Tell us about it! Have you created a new service or renovated your space? Show us what you’ve done! Or even if you have work that is in progress, we’d love to hear from you.

First-time presenters are particularly encouraged to submit a proposal.

Your proposal should detail the following:

  • Title
  • Presenter/s Name
  • Contact information
  • Organisation/s
  • Abstract of no more than 300 words
  • Short (15 minutes) or long (30 minutes) presentation

Please submit your proposal as a Word document via email to using the subject line: ALIA SA Symposium proposal

Submissions are due by COB Monday 28 September 2015.

Presenting at the ALIA SA Symposium is a great opportunity to practice your presentation skills, network with colleagues and engage and learn with other presenters.
