APLA 2024 Conference Call for Proposals

This year’s conference theme, “Looking Forward: Library Futures”, encourages information professionals to ponder the evolving role of libraries in the 21st century. As libraries adapt to societal, technological, and educational changes, the APLA conference aims to explore innovative strategies, emerging trends, and transformative ideas that will shape the future of libraries.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to technological innovations in libraries; inclusive and accessible library spaces; digital literacy and information fluency; community engagement and outreach; sustainable practices in libraries; AI and emerging technologies in library services; preservation of cultural heritage in the digital age; and collaborative initiatives and partnerships.

We welcome insights and viewpoints from a diverse range of organizations, including but not limited to public libraries, health libraries, special libraries, archives, academic libraries, non-profit organizations, community groups, and beyond!

The deadline for proposals has been extended! Proposals are now due by April 15, 2024.

If you have questions, please contact conference@apla.ca.
