What Is “CALL for Presentations”?

One of my favorite things about libraries is that they foster the spirit of collaboration. Whether you’re new to libraries, or in charge of starting a new program, or looking to change up the way you’re doing things, you know you can always ask a colleague for their input or call another library and find someone willing to share information with you.

Learning directly from our colleagues is one of the best ways to learn, which is why CALL has started CALL for Presentations. If you are running a program, providing a service, or have a particular skillset that you think others could learn from then CALL for Presentations is a great way to get your ideas out there. CALL will provide you with the platform; you supply the innovation. We want to help create networking opportunities and facilitate knowledge-share discussions so we can all learn from each other.

Anyone in your library can submit an idea for CALL for Presentations. Presentation formats include a 50 minute webinar, an interactive workshop, a micro-presentation (i.e. you’d present for about 10 minutes and then someone else would have a turn), a longer course, or whatever idea you have! We’ll help you figure out what is best, just submit your presentation idea.
