MLA ’22 Call for Papers and Immersion Sessions

Posted in: Blog

Time is running out to submit your paper abstracts and immersion sessions for the MLA ’22 annual conference! Share your professional research and explorations with your colleagues and contribute to the knowledge of librarians. This is a great opportunity to earn professional credibility, have your work appreciated and your voice heard.

Here are some resources to help you get started:

Submit an Abstract
Paper and Immersion Session Guidelines
Your abstract will be categorized into one of seven MLA Areas of Practice:

  • Clinical Support
  • Education
  • Global Health & Health Equity
  • Information Management
  • Information Services
  • Innovation & Research Practice
  • Professionalism & Leadership

Contributed papers are 10-15 minute presentations that are program description abstracts related to products, programs, technologies, administrative practices, and services conducted by librarians and information professions or are research abstracts on designing, conducting, and analyzing a research project. If your paper is selected, you will have the opportunity to indicate if you prefer to present online or in person.

Immersion sessions are up to 75 minutes of “deep dives” into a single topic. The format may include interactive panel presentations, role-playing, gamification, discussions, working groups, and other activities engaging with the audience. Immersion sessions will be held in-person only.
