    The SLA Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas-Western Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, and St. Louis communities invite you to share your knowledge and experiences! Take part in an exciting annual virtual event featuring colleagues from around the Midwest. This year's theme is Unusual Librarianship and topics should relate to special librarianship.

    The 2023 SLA Midwest Symposium will occur on Friday, August 11 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM Central. This is a completely online event, taking place via Zoom. You are invited to propose one (or both) of the following:

    • Lighting talk (super-focused 10-minute talk on your topic)
    • Education session (30 min)

    Presenters who have recently begun/completed a project/initiative, published an article/blog post, or shifted their career in some way are especially encouraged to submit a proposal. You do not need to be from (or living in) the Midwest to propose a session! 

    Submit your 2023 SLA Midwest Symposium proposal

    Proposals are due Monday, June 19, 2023. Presenters will be notified by Monday, June 26. If you have any questions, please contact Dan Bostrom, dan.bostrom@railslibraries.org.
