Call for Proposals
Submission Deadline – May 25th, 2010

February 2nd – 5th, 2011
Metro Toronto Convention Centre

What topics is OCULA looking for?
We are looking for presentations that reflect the challenging and exciting times in college and university libraries. Particular topics of interest include assessments, collaboration, collection development, reference services, theory, digitization, scholarly communications, and more. This is a great opportunity to present your ideas, research or experience to your peers. Spotlight on Research At the 2010 Conference we added a new type of session called Spotlight on Research. In these sessions two presentations were showcased in one 75 minute time slot. The intention was to highlight the research being done in areas related to academic libraries and where a 30-35 minute time slot was more appropriate. If you are currently working on research you would like to present at the conference, you may wish to note that you would be interested in sharing a Spotlight on Research slot when you submit your proposal.

How do I submit a proposal?
You can submit a proposal for a session you would like to PRESENT; however, you can also submit a proposal for a topic that you would like to see covered but that you don’t want to present. Please submit your proposal or idea to the OLA website at:
