The theme of the conference is "Utah Libraries: At the Core of Our Communities" and we invite proposals for speakers, workshops, panels, new ideas forums, pre-conferences and poster sessions that will be of interest to all types of libraries. We will accept proposals until midnight on Sunday, October 31, 2010.
You may complete a proposal for one of the following types of programs:
Pre-Conference (half day or full day)--provides a more in-depth learning environment which may include a variety of instructional menthods.
Speaker session (1 or 2 hour)--a lecture-style presentation involving one or more speakers.
Workshop (1 or 2 hour)--workshops engage attendees in hands-on experiences.
Paper Presentation/Panel Speaker (15-30 minutes)--share a paper or idea as part of a panel.
New ideas forum --forum presenters will have 10 minutes to present a new idea, best practice, or innovative project. Several ideas will be presented in a single forum with time for audience questions and discussion.

We encourage proposals on any aspect of libraries and library services, especially those that reflect the conference theme.
