2017 OLA Annual Conference Program Proposal Form
Share |

Thank you for your interest in submitting a program proposal for the 2017 Annual Oklahoma Library Association Conference. The conference will be held Monday, April 24th through Wednesday, April 26th at the National Center for Employee Development in Norman, Oklahoma. The Program Planning Committee is pleased to announce the conference theme will be Reach.

All libraries and information professionals must reach in a variety of ways to be successful and remain relevant in the eyes of their students, customers, and communities. You can reach out to your community through creative programing and outreach tactics, and by practicing ethical and socially responsible librarianship; reach higher by learning about and implementing the latest technology, tools, and techniques; and reach across by learning to advocate for libraries in your community and beyond. Please join us in gathering the innovative, future thinking, and diverse programming Oklahoma librarians and library staff need to reach their potential.
