The end of the semester is close for many of us (and may be over for some us, too). Now is a good time of year to tackle some of those projects you’ve “been meaning” to do. That’s my plan, anyway. There are several opportunities waiting for you service-learning fans out there!
First, the first-ever Colloquium on Libraries & Service-Learning seeks proposals.
Join us for Extending Our Reach: The Inaugural Colloquium on Academic Libraries & Service Learning. The colloquium invites all who are interested in current and potential partnerships between academic librarians, faculty who teach service learning courses and service learning partners. The conference is designed to facilitate the sharing of research, ideas, perspectives and best practices in library engagement with/in academic service learning. The colloquium will feature a keynote speaker, 30-minute presentations, round table discussions, and poster sessions. The conference will be limited to 75 attendees to facilitate opportunities to network and connect with colleagues in this emerging focus area of librarianship. The submission form is now live! The deadline for submissions is January 31.
Full call for proposals and submission form: http://digitalcommons.lmu.edu/libraries-and-service-learning/

Also, Service Learning Librarian seeks contributing writers. Have you been involved in a service-learning project recently? Tell us about it! Learn more about becoming a contributor here: http://www.libraries.wright.edu/servicelearning/contributors-2/
Happy Holidays, all!
