CAPAL16: BEYOND THE LIBRARY: AGENCY, PRACTICE, AND SOCIETY

CAPAL/ACBAP Annual Conference – May 28 - May 31, 2016<x-apple-data-detectors://6>
Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 2016 (May 28–June 3, 2016<x-apple-data-detectors://7>)
University of Calgary
Calgary, Alberta

The Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL) invites participation in its annual conference, to be held as part of Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 2016 at the University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada (http://congress2016.ca/). The conference offers opportunity to share critical research and scholarship, challenge current thinking, and forge new relationships across all disciplines.

THEME

In keeping with the Congress 2016 theme, Energizing Communities, CAPAL16 seeks to look “Beyond the Library” to rethink how academic librarians engage with their communities within which our institutions are situated or those with whom we share disciplinary concerns or approaches. Such communities may be physical, epistemic, academic, or imagined communities, communities of identity, or those communities around us and to which we contribute.

What can the discipline of library and information studies (LIS) learn from other disciplines? What might LIS as an interdisciplinary field look like? Where and how should academic librarianship be situated within and in relation to other communities?

RATIONALE

Like any institution, academic libraries both reflect and help shape the societies of which they are part. It is therefore critical for academic librarians to consider how they and their work are situated – professionally, ontologically, ethically, epistemologically, and physically. As social agents, we share and occupy socio-economic, political, and technological spaces in our efforts to provide diverse, high quality, informational resources and critical education within a contemporary (i.e., neoliberal) legal and economic framework.

In such an environment, effecting change requires seeking out, examining, and engaging with new ideas, approaches, theories, communities, understandings, and ways of knowing, which, themselves, may fall outside the traditional boundaries of the discipline of library and information studies. We need to move our lines of inquiry “beyond the library”–physically and intellectually–into new arenas and new communities. This conference is an invitation to academic librarians and scholars who study libraries and information to discuss how we can reframe academic librarianship: in practice, in policy, in theory, and in society.

Potential topic areas include but are not limited to:

• Academic librarianship in the context of urgent socio-political priorities, such as climate change, environmental sustainability, and social equity;
• The relationship between academic librarianship and democracy;
• Academic librarianship and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples;
• Indigenizing, decolonizing, diversity, and inclusion in academic librarianship;
• The philosophical bases of academic librarianship in social theory;
• The history of academic librarianship and the role of academic librarians in the academy;
• The potentially biased treatment of controversial issues and scholarly debates in knowledge organization and information retrieval systems;
• The sociology of knowledge mobilization;
• Academic librarianship and its relationship to the design of user spaces;
• Academic librarianship’s response to privacy and security in the “post-Snowden” era;
• Community development, “town-gown” relationships, and academic librarianship;
• Core values of academic librarianship in mediated spaces;
• Critical theory, interdisciplinary approaches and subject expertise in LIS education for academic librarians.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

The Program Committee invites proposals for individual papers as well as proposals for panel submissions of three papers. Individual papers are typically 20 minutes in length. For individual papers, please submit an abstract of 300 words and a presentation title, with brief biographical statement and your contact information.

ACBAP16 : AU-DELÀ DE LA BIBLIOTHÈQUE : ACTION, PRATIQUE ET SOCIÉTÉ

Conférence annuelle de la CAPAL/ACBAP – Du 28 mai au 31 mai 2016<x-apple-data-detectors://14>
Congrès des sciences humaines 2016 (Du 28 mai au 3 juin 2016<x-apple-data-detectors://15>)
Université de Calgary
Calgary, Alberta

L’Association canadienne des bibliothécaires académiques professionnels (ACBAP) invite les intéressés à participer à sa conférence annuelle qui aura lieu dans le cadre du Congrès des sciences humaines 2016 à l’Université de Calgary, à Calgary en Alberta, au Canada (http://congress2016.ca/). La conférence donne l’occasion de partager des travaux de recherche et d’étude de premier plan, de remettre en question les idées actuelles et de créer des liens entre toutes les disciplines.

THÈME

Compte tenu du thème du Congrès 2016, L’énergie des communautés, ACBAP16 vise à aller « Au-delà de la bibliothèque » afin de repenser les interactions des bibliothécaires académiques avec les collectivités desservies par nos institutions ou avec  celles qui partagent nos préoccupations et approches disciplinaires. Il peut s’agir de communautés physiques, épistémiques, universitaires ou imaginées, ainsi que de collectivités auxquelles nous contribuons autour de nous.

Qu’est-ce que la discipline de la bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l’information (BSI) peut apprendre d’autres disciplines? Quel serait l’aspect de la BSI en tant que domaine interdisciplinaire? Comment définir la place que devrait occuper la bibliothéconomie académique par rapport à d’autres communautés et au sein de celles-ci?

JUSTIFICATION

Comme toutes les institutions, les bibliothèques académiques reflètent et influencent les sociétés auxquelles elles appartiennent. Il est donc essentiel que les bibliothécaires académiques réfléchissent sur leur rôle et celui de leur travail du point de vue professionnel, ontologique, éthique, épistémologique et physique. À titre d’agents sociaux, nous partageons et occupons une place sur le plan socioéconomique, politique et technologique, alors que nous veillons à fournir des ressources de grande qualité, diversifiées et informationnelles, ainsi qu’une formation critique dans un cadre juridique et économique contemporain (c.-à-d. néolibéral).

Susciter le changement dans un tel milieu nécessite la recherche constante, l’examen, et l’exploration de nouvelles idées, approaches, théories, communautés, interprétations et connaissances, lesquelles peuvent dépasser les limites traditionnelles de la discipline de la bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l’information. Nos interrogations doivent nous mener « au-delà de la bibliothèque », vers de nouvelles sphères et de nouvelles communautés autant physiques qu’intellectuelles. Cette conférence invite les bibliothécaires académiques et les chercheurs qui s’intéressent aux bibliothèques et aux services d’information à discuter comment recadrer la bibliothéconomie académique : en pratique, dans les politiques, en théorie et dans la société.

Les sujets peuvent inclure, entre autres :

• La bibliothéconomie académique dans le contexte des enjeux sociopolitiques prioritaires, tels que le changement climatique, la viabilité écologique et l’égalité sociale;
• La relation entre la bibliothéconomie académique et la démocratie;
• La bibliothéconomie académique et la réconciliation avec les populations autochtones;
• Autochtonisation, décolonisation, diversité et inclusion au sein de la bibliothéconomie académique;
• Les fondements philosophiques de la bibliothéconomie académique dans la théorie sociale;
• L’histoire de la bibliothéconomie académique et le rôle des bibliothécaires académiques dans le milieu universitaire;
• Le traitement potentiellement biaisé des questions controversées et des débats intellectuels concernant l’organisation du savoir et les systèmes de recherche documentaire;
• La sociologie de la mobilisation du savoir;
• La bibliothéconomie académique et son lien avec la conception des espaces destinés aux usagers;
• La réaction de la bibliothéconomie académique en matière de vie privée et de sécurité à l’ère post-Snowden;
• Le développement des communautés, les relations « communauté-campus » et la bibliothéconomie académique;
• Les valeurs fondamentales de la bibliothéconomie académique dans les espaces médiatisés;
• La théorie critique, les approches interdisciplinaires et les connaissances spécialisées en matière de formation en BSI destinée aux bibliothécaires académiques.

SOUMISSION

Le comité du programme sollicite des propositions de communication individuelle, ainsi que de présentation en groupe de trois communications. Les communications individuelles durent normalement 20 minutes. Pour les communications individuelles, veuillez fournir un résumé de 300 mots, le titre de la présentation, une courte description biographique et vos coordonnées.
