CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
Papers and Presentations

The VRD 7th Annual Reference Conference
Recognizing the Success of Reference

November 14-15, 2005
San Francisco, CA


Proposals are invited for concurrent breakout session presentations at the
VRD 7th Annual Reference Conference on Monday and Tuesday, November 14-15,
2005.

The VRD conference explores all aspects of reference service in a broad
range of contexts, including libraries and information centers,
government, business, education, and other industry sectors or
organizations. The theme of this year's conference, "Recognizing the
Success of Reference," examines the challenges, accomplishments, and
perhaps pitfalls of integrating digital reference into the traditional
reference environment. With technologies such as SMS, Podcasting, voice
over IP (VoIP), and more becoming increasingly mainstream, the potential
to provide instant, on-the-go reference is limitless.
Authors are encouraged to examine issues, identify practices, and propose
organizational and technological systems, standards, and procedures that
advance the state of reference librarianship as practiced in a variety of
environments and mediums.

Presenters will receive free registration for the conference. Please note
that there is a two-person limit per presentation; in the case of two
presenters for one session, one presenter will receive free registration.
