The CILC is accepting proposals for presentations at the 2023 Best Practices Symposium, being held on Friday, April 28 at Harper College in Palatine, IL.  The theme for the symposium is “Building a Solid LC Program Structure.”  The CILC is looking for proposals on a variety of LC-related topics with special emphasis on efforts to stimulate and sustain existing LC programs, especially after the pandemic.  We hope that, in returning to the basics, we can collectively find new opportunities for innovation.

Session Proposal categories can include but are not limited to:

Building a Solid LC Program Structure



                Erecting Structural Supports



                Nuts and Bolts

                           Faculty Development

                           Student Recruitment


                Durability [Maintaining that solid structure over time.]

                           Transfer of Ownership



Proposals will be accepted up to Friday, Feb. 24, 2023.
