      Not Just for Librarians!

      The Libraries, Archives, Museums and Popular Culture area solicits paper proposals from librarians, archivists, curators, graduate students, faculty, collectors, writers, and other aficionados (yes! including people who use libraries, archives, and museums!) of popular culture and information settings of all types. We encourage proposals for slide shows, video presentations, workshop formats, and panels organized around common themes. Among recent presentations were discussions of tribal librarianship, library presences in Second Life, and the history and future of the archives of the TV show King of the Hill.

      Some suggested topics:
      * Histories and profiles of museums, archives, libraries, and other popular culture resources
      * Intellectual freedom or cultural sensitivity issues related to popular culture resources
      * Book clubs and reading groups, city- or campus-wide reading programs
      * Collection building and popular culture resources
      * Organization and description of popular culture resources
      * New media formats and popular culture in libraries, archives, or museums
      * Wikipedia, YouTube, Google books, social networking, EBay, and their impact on libraries and popular culture collections
      * The role of public libraries in natural disasters and post-disaster community rebuilding
      Other topics welcome!!!

      Send a 200-word abstract to the Area Co-Chairs by November 16, 2008. Include your complete mailing address, school or other affiliation, e-mail address, telephone number, and fax number. Graduate students are encouraged to present, and to apply for the graduate paper awards listed at http://www.h-net.org/~swpca/Awards/awards.htm.
