The Creative Ideas in Technical Services Interest Group (CITSIG) seeks presenters for brief but lively discussions for its session at Core Virtual Interest Group Week, February 1-5, 2021. The CITSIG session will take place on Thursday, February 4, 2021 at 3:00 pm EST/2:00 pm CST. Presenters will give a quick introduction to a creative idea that they are interested in, and attendees will then have a chance to engage in a lively, informal discussion of the topic in virtual breakout rooms.
We welcome a wide range of topics related to technical services, particularly acquisitions, cataloging, metadata, classification, preservation, or systems in academic, public, special, or school libraries.
If selected, presenters should plan to prepare:
A short presentation (5-10 minutes) introducing a creative idea related to technical services: why are you interested in this topic? Why might other library staff be interested? What's the history behind the idea, or where might it take us in the future?
Three to six discussion prompts, which will be shared with breakout groups to get some conversations started
Please submit your proposal to the Interest Group’s chair, Sarah Hovde ([log in to unmask]), and vice-chair, Susan Martin ([log in to unmask]), by Tuesday, December 22, 2020, and include the following:
Short presentation summary (less than 200 words)
Two to three sample discussion prompts
Name, title, affiliation, and email address for presenter
Presenters will be notified of acceptance by January 8, 2021.
