CALL FOR PROPOSALS for the Back in Circulation Again Conference (Conference in Madison from October 19-20, 2020)
Do you have an innovative approach to circulation services you’d like to share? The University of Wisconsin-Madison, Information School will host their popular Back in Circulation Again conference Oct 19-20, 2020 and will accept proposals until January 31, 2020.
Topics may include, but are not limited to: e-reserves, stacks management, staff management, staff training, staff motivation, keeping up with technology, customer service, diversity issues, and innovation.
See last year’s schedule (Back in Circulation Program 2018) for inspiration. Circulation managers and staff from public and academic libraries all over the United States and Canada (and beyond!) attend.

Censorship Beyond Books
Just as books can be censored, displays, programs and databases come under fire. Libraries provide resources and services that are essential to ensure equitable access to information for all, including underserved populations. But while libraries are often well-versed in protecting the right to read, many lack policies and experience in addressing censorship and complaints of resources and services on the front line. This presentation will highlight specific case studies and offer practical guidance on safeguarding intellectual freedom beyond book challenges.
