ACRL STS Research Forum - Call for Proposals

ACRL STS Research Forum -- Chicago 2005

The ACRL Science and Technology Section's (STS) Research Committee invites submission of abstracts of research papers to be given at the STS Forum for Science & Technology Library Research in Chicago on Sunday, June 26, 2005, from 3:30-5:30 pm at the ALA Annual Conference. The Research Forum provides an excellent opportunity to share recent research addressing issues in science and technology librarianship in its broadest sense. Two proposals will be selected through a blind review process on the basis of timeliness, evidence of scholarship, and relevance to science and technology librarianship.

ABSTRACT: An abstract not exceeding 250 words should convey the title and purpose of the project, its scope, methodology, conclusions, and relevance to science and technology librarianship. Priority will be given to papers that indicate research analyses, either quantitative or qualitative.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: January 10, 2005. Papers will be selected at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Boston by the STS Research Committee.

PAPERS: Acceptance of proposals reflects a commitment by the author(s) to provide presentations of no longer than 30 minutes at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.

SUBMISSIONS: Abstracts should be submitted via e-mail to Karen Grigg at grigg012 AT mc.duke.edu, Co-Chair of the STS Research Committee. Be sure to include your name, institution, phone, fax, and e-mail address.
