Please excuse any duplication of this message due to cross-posting.

The International Association of Technological University Libraries
23rd Annual Conference
"Partnerships, Consortia, & 21st Century Library Service"
June 2-6, 2002
Kansas City, Missouri, USA

The turn of the 21st century ushers in a level of cooperation and outreach
that is unparalleled in its energy, enthusiasm, and urgency. The
information world continues its rapid evolution with an emphasis on
strategic alliances. These alliances in the changing worlds of higher
education and universities take the form of organizational partnerships,
influential consortia, and other affiliations designed to provide creative
and flexible service to user groups.

The IATUL Board, the Linda Hall Library, and the University of
Missouri-Kansas City, are delighted to welcome colleagues to Kansas City,
Missouri and to offer delegates at the 2002 Annual Conference the
opportunity to explore library initiatives, information service models,
and responses to cooperative activities in this expanding information
world. We invite you to submit a paper or poster and to join the
conversation emanating from the conference themes and presentations.

Contributed Papers and Poster Sessions:

Papers and informal poster sessions may report the results of completed
research, describe research in progress, or present a position on a
compelling issue related to the conference themes. Research papers should
clearly describe the issue, explain the methodology, and, in the case of
completed research, state the conclusions. Position papers might propose
theoretical models, present state-of-the-art reviews, or formally describe
strategies or innovations that have the potential for substantive impact.
Papers are particularly encouraged that challenge current assumptions and
provoke readers to think creatively and deeply about the issues facing
academic librarians.

Authors should submit a Program Proposal Application Form, including an
abstract of 250-500 words. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of
these abstracts.

The deadline for submission is December 1, 2001; authors will be notified
of acceptance in February 2002. The deadline for submission of completed
papers is April 26, 2002.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to register for and attend the
conference and will be given 20 minutes to present their papers within a
30-minute time slot. Completed papers should be 1,800-2,500 words long and
should be scholarly in nature, well organized, clearly written, and
rigorously argued. Papers will be published on the IATUL web site and in
the IATUL Conference Proceedings on CD-ROM.
