Western Region Section Annual Seminar 2018 - Call for papers

Monday, 11 June 2018 (All day)

The Western Region Section of the Library Association of Ireland is pleased to announce that our annual seminar will be held on the 11th  June 2018 in Ballinasloe Library.

Our Title this year is CHALLENGING TIMES.

2018 is a year of celebrations, commemorations and anniversaries and challenges still to overcome. It’s the year of data and privacy including GDPR and its implications for our work. It marks a hundred years of women getting the right to vote. It’s the year sign language was finally officially recognised as a language. It’s the year of Irish. It’s the year the Region of Galway Gastronomy is launched. To name just a few.

We look forward to hearing your views on Challenging Times in your workplace, and receiving your proposals

We are accepting submissions for 10 minute lightening talks, or 20-30 minute presentations. We also welcome poster submissions.

Please keep proposals to 300 words max and they should be emailed to with an outline of the proposed talk and a brief biography of the speaker.

The deadline for submissions is the 11th May 2018.

Further details will be posted on our blog
