    Hello DSSH members,

    It may seem like we were just in Cleveland, but the submission window for 2020 SLA conference proposals will open will open in less than three weeks!

    We need your help to develop the division's programming for next June in Charlotte. If you have ideas for topics or potential speakers, please reply to this thread or send me an email at

    All ideas are welcome - so don't be shy! Sessions can be anywhere from 5-minute lightning talks or 20-minute quick takes to full 90-minute panel discussions. SLA is particularly interested in sessions that meet the needs of professionals at different career stages (fundamental, intermediate, advanced); that align with the core competencies; and that highlight diversity, equity, and inclusion.

    And, for the fun part, you can also help us decide on tours for Charlotte. Here are some suggestions below, and we'd welcome other ideas. Let me know your thoughts or preferences.

    P.S. Don't forget that you can also submit conference ideas by participating in this survey by Sunday, August 11th:

    Hi Stephen,

    I am interested in presenting at SLA2020.  I would like to present an Intro to Data Viz session (partnering with Data Caucus??).  Here's a link to the presentation I gave at my library recently.

    I've presented in the past at SLA on Statistics and Information Literacy back in the early 2000s.

    I Would be happy to discuss by phone if that makes it easier.
