Call for Presentations

We are pleased to announce that the next Annual Meeting of the Northern California Technical Processes Group (NCTPG) will take place in San Francisco April or May 2018.

Our 81st annual meeting will be organized under the theme “Choosing Your Battles.”

For 2018, we will have two options for presenting.  Full presentations are usually 20-30 minutes with additional participation in a panel discussion.   We are also excited to say that we are seeking proposals for 5-minute presentations where speakers can discuss one change they have made in their library.

At this event, we expect to have a broad representation of types of libraries (public, academic, special) and a diverse representation of roles within and around technical services.  We are planning a half-day event to be held in Koret Auditorium at San Francisco Public Library.

Possible topics could include:

  • System migration(s)
  • Flying solo in a smaller technical services setting
  • Collection building & assessment
  • Small projects ($5k or less) that have big impacts
  • Hiring for technical services
  • Improving workflows

Please submit your proposal to the NCTPG steering committee with the subject “2018 Call for Presentations” at

Deadline for submission: Wednesday, 13 December, 2017.
