SELECTION CRITERIA

MLA Annual Meeting proposals are reviewed by members of the Program
Committee, which includes members of MLA and TLA. Proposals should address:

   -

   The main points of your session
   -

   Relevance to attendees
   -

   How your proposal is unique or different from others that may address
   the same topic
   -

   How presenter(s) will engage the audience
   -

   Learning objectives, goals, or takeaways

The Program Committee will evaluate proposals as anonymous submissions;
proposals will be selected on the strength of the abstract, based on the
above criteria. Special consideration will be given to proposals addressing
new or emerging areas of performing arts librarianship, as well as those
submitted by first-time presenters.

The Program Committee will additionally strive to select a balance of
proposals reflecting the range of institutions (academic, public, special,
etc.), specializations (cataloging, archives, information literacy,
collection development, etc.), and attendees (librarians, archivists,
paraprofessionals, students and emerging professionals, retirees, etc.)
represented at our Annual Meetings.


SESSION DISCUSSION SPREADSHEET

The Program Committee has created a public spreadsheet
<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1z78KCbErL9kQAgn723nnV-g9OHyBsM-ZcZDsPPJqHrk/edit?usp=sharing>
to allow sharing of proposal ideas and connect potential collaborators. The
spreadsheet is an informal tool, and the information in it will not be used
by the Committee in evaluating program proposals. (Idea credit to the
Society of American Archivists). The spreadsheet is also available on
the Annual
Meeting website
<http://conferences.blog.musiclibraryassoc.org/call-for-papers>.


PROPOSAL SUBMISSION

Proposals may be submitted online via the Annual Meeting website
<http://conferences.blog.musiclibraryassoc.org/call-for-papers>.


PLEASE NOTE

A separate call for business meeting room requests is forthcoming.

We look forward to your proposals! Please feel free to contact me with
questions.

Sincerely,

Kristina Shanton, Ithaca College

Program Chair, 2021 Annual Meeting
