Established in 1921, the Catholic Library Association is an international membership organization, providing its members professional development through educational and networking experiences, publications, scholarships, and other services. The Catholic Library Association coordinates the exchange of ideas, provides a source of inspirational support and guidance in ethical issues related to librarianship, and offers fellowship for those who seek, serve, preserve, and share the word in all its forms.
Those attending CLA are librarians serving patrons of all ages primarily in K-12, academic, theological, parish and public libraries. In addition to general topics for these groups, additional sessions focus on archives, information literacy, technical services and preservation of American Catholic materials. Teachers and administrators registered with NCEA may also attend any CLA session. The 2014 convention theme is Leadership, Direction, Service.
Include a description of the topic or title of the program, name of presenter(s) with complete contact information, brief description of the proposed program, audience level and references for prior presentations, if available.
