AABIG Annual Conference

The Atlanta Area Bibliographic Instruction Group (AABIG) 12th annual conference will convene on May 17, 2013 at the Mercer University in Atlanta. This year’s theme is Beyond Face Value: Asserting the Value of Instruction and Making Instruction Valuable. As the U.S. president and the Governor of Georgia push for increasing student success rates, it is more important than ever that libraries maintain and advocate their value.
This year, the conference will focus on the practical and new ways librarians are affirming their worth to their institutions through effective instruction, assessment, and marketing. AABIG invites proposals for 20 and 45 minute sessions that address this theme. The committee particularly invites submissions from public and academic librarians, school media specialists, and individuals from diverse backgrounds. Lively and interactive sessions are preferred.
Ideas include but are not limited to:
– effective instruction, outreach, and assessment methods
– effective strategies for online and face-to-face instruction
– practical techniques for advocacy/marketing toward external stakeholders
– innovative techniques, examples, and pedagogy to intrigue and entice students
