Call for Proposals for the Manitoba Libraries Conference, May 18 & 19, 2023
We are excited to invite your submission of proposals for the 2023 Manitoba Library Association’s Virtual Conference, May 18 & 19, 2023.
This year’s conference theme is Access and Accessibility. We hope that this theme will inspire recognition, conversation, practicable tips and understanding around access and accessibility in libraries, with specific attention to the Accessibility for Manitobans Act and Accessibility Standard for Information and Communications, as well as topics addressing access and accessibility broadly – in keeping with MLA’s commitments to equity, diversity and inclusion as a key pillar in our programming.
The 2023 Workshop for Instruction in Library Use (WILU) marks the 50th conference devoted to teaching and learning in libraries.
Presenters and attendees from Canada and beyond meet to discuss information literacy as it continuously evolves in various library settings.
The Program Committee invites proposals for the 50th edition of WILU hosted at McGill University located in Montreal, Québec, Canada from May 16 to 19, 2023.

We are partnering with the Saskatchewan Library Association to plan and host a virtual conference in June 2021!
This will be a different experience for both attendees and organizers. A virtual conference will require a different approach, and in many respects a different skill set. The following is a preliminary list of roles, recognizing that changes may occur as we proceed.
If you have experience/interest in the above roles, please provide your name, contact information, and area of expertise/interest by January 8, 2021.
Please note that we may not be able to accommodate everyone, as we expect fewer volunteers will be required compared to an in-person event.
Thank you in advance for your interest.
Kerry Macdonald, MLA
