We are pleased to announce that the next Annual Meeting of the Northern California Technical Processes Group (NCTPG) will take place in San Francisco on Friday, May 10, 2019.
Our 82nd annual meeting will be organized under the theme “Increasing Access, Increasing Effectiveness.”
For 2019, we will have two options for presenting. Full presentations are usually 20-30 minutes with additional participation in a panel discussion. Due to the success of last year’s 5-minute presentations, we are again seeking shorter proposals 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, with optional afternoon tours of related interest nearby.
Possible topics could include:
- Increasing access to collections
- Flying solo in a smaller technical services setting
- Small projects ($5k or less) that have big impacts
- Successful collaborations with IT and/or other departments
- Improving workflows and processes
Please submit your proposal to the NCTPG steering committee with the subject “2019 Call for Presentations” at email@example.com.
Deadline for submission: Friday, 4 January 2019.
