The Transforming Libraries for Graduate Students conference committee is seeking peer reviewers to review proposals for the upcoming virtual conference. The event will take place on Tuesday, March 12, and Wednesday, March 13, 2024.
Presentations are expected to cover aspects of supporting graduate programs in libraries and professional development for graduate librarians. In addition to fundamental issues such as research workshops; systematic and literature reviews; copyright; scholarships; and OER, suggestions for additional topics include collaborations with graduate students and faculty; ethics and academic integrity; students as researchers and instructors; scholarly communication; online instruction; non-traditional, international, and under-served students; data services; professional development topics such as tenure and promotion; publishing; research teams and the research life cycle. For Day Two, priority will be given to presentations that address the professional development of graduate librarians, with topics such as continuing education; tenure and promotion; publishing; and the research life cycle.
This will be a light workload that does not require a heavy time commitment. Peer reviewers will have no more than three proposals each to review.
- Peer Review in November and December.
- Final decisions are due Sunday, December 31, 2023.
- Participants will be notified in early January 2024.
Peer reviewers will also agree to moderate a virtual session during the conference.
