Centering Library Services: Finding Balance in What We Do
Thursday, July 20, 2023
TCAL is returning for an in-person experience!
The 8th annual Towson Conference for Academic Libraries will be held on Thursday, July 20, 2023 at Towson University.
This low-cost, one-day conference is for all academic library workers.
This year’s theme is “Centering Library Services: Finding balance in what we do.” At the 8th annual TCAL, we are looking forward to exploring the balance in work-life balance. We will be interested in session proposals that explore this theme with such perspectives as:
- Leisure, fun, & library work-life balance
- Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in academic libraries
- Strategies for managing workloads and stress
- Fresh ideas and innovative perspectives for the 21st century and/or the post-pandemic library
- Tales of successful and/or not successful projects
- Examples of leading change in your community(ies)
- Experiences working with new technology
- Challenges to established workflows and philosophies
- Ideas for the future in an interdepartmental, collaborative environment
- Workshops demonstrating hard skills
- Practical problem-solving and skill sharing
- Ideas informed by diverse and critical perspectives
- Innovation and practices from non-library fields
- Approaches for cross-departmental collaboration and empowerment at work
- Helping the local academic library community connect and re-connect
