Call for Proposals: GALILEO Annual Conference

GALILEO, Georgia Public Library Service and Digital Library of Georgia are looking for your best conference proposals for the upcoming GALILEO Annual Conference.

The virtual event will take place June 15-17. This year’s theme is: Revive and Thrive: Library Services and the New Reality. Conference sessions will be approximately 45-50 minutes with additional time for Q&As.

We are looking for proposals that showcase how schools, public libraries and colleges have continued to go above and beyond during the pandemic as it relates to learning and instruction in library services. Primarily, we are looking for proposals that focus on GALILEO and any of its e-resources vendors or partners. Bring your lessons learned, new ideas and opportunities for growth.

Your proposal should fall into at least one of four areas: K-12, public libraries, academic libraries or the Digital Library of Georgia. Topics could include:

  • Libraries’ responses to current social issues (Civil rights, black lives matter, social activism, etc.)
  • Libraries’ providing information on COVID-19 (Access to historical and scientific information about pandemics; * keeping community informed about resources available)
  • Libraries’ services changing as a result of the pandemic (what are we doing differently or new?)
  • Virtual learning and instruction using GALILEO
  • Marketing virtual programs and services
  • Promoting safety and self-care online
  • Ebook projects using EBSCO, ProQuest or other platforms
  • Lessons using GALILEO resources on the U.S. Census
  • Social studies lessons featuring Digital Library of Georgia (immigration, elections, civil rights, etc.)
  • Innovative outreach to library communities
