IACRL and RAILS are excited to announce a new event for Spring 2020 – Spark: Connect and Get Fired Up! We hope this professional development opportunity will be the first of many to Spark our enthusiasm to share and connect with each other as academic librarians in Illinois. Librarians from all libraries in Illinois are welcome and encouraged to attend!

The committee is now seeking proposals that feature the theme Connect and Get Fired Up! What gets you motivated and ignites your enthusiasm? What special projects are you working on?

Topics to consider include:

  • OER Developments

Speakers will share their experience with participants in 15-minute lightening rounds. After a set of lightening rounds, speakers will lead round table discussions with participants to network and discuss each lightening round topic. Participants will be able to share their own experiences and ideas with one another.
