CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials (SALALM) invites submission of proposals for its 63rd annual meeting, hosted by Biblioteca Daniel Cosío Villegas at the El Colegio de México in Mexico City, July 1-4, 2018. Priority will be given to workshops, roundtables, pop ups, panels, presentations and rodas vivas that address disputed places (sites) like the Plaza de Tres Culturas Tlatelolco and references (cites) to these spaces. The conference theme, S/Cites, Texts, and Voices in Critical Librarianship: Decolonizing Libraries and Archives is an invitation to think critically about how the processes of selection, commodification, organization, and description give shape to research and teaching on Latin America, Iberia and the Caribbean. For more information about the conference please consult the conference webpage http://salalm2018.colmex.mx/. Instructions for proposals follow. Proposals might consider questions including, but are not limited to:

  1. How can we use contested space to explore how we influence significance, perspective, and critical reflection in our professions?
  2. How do our descriptions of resources or events reinforce or challenge meanings?
  3. How might we address the inequalities of access to electronic platforms and misperceptions about their provision of global resources?
  4. How does a s/cite’s symbolism or repeated appearance (or lack thereof) promote or hinder “impact” in our professions?
  5. What roles do standards and professional benchmarks play in collection building, cataloging, and curricular development?
  6. How does our work promote or hinder information empowerment and global information equality?
  7. How might alternative library and archival practices or tools foster equitable access?
  8. How do current funding structures affect our successes and failures?
  9. How can we foster critical reflection in our profession?
