                                 Call for Papers

                 Migrations in Society, Culture and the Library
             WESS International Conference: Paris March 22-26, 2004

      The Western European Studies Section (WESS) of the Association
      College and Research Libraries (ACRL) invites paper and panel
      proposals that apply to the theme of the conference: Migrations
      Society, Culture and the Library.

      Although the themes of the conference are broad, we especially
      encourage individual paper proposals and panel proposals that:

- address how migration-related transformations in Western Europe are
affecting collection strategies and public service in North American
and European research libraries

- examine transatlantic activities and projects in Western European
Migration Studies, and their significance for libraries

- address the transformations of materials that libraries must acquire
and the tools they use to provide storage and access

- investigate how "migrating" borders (both in scholarly disciplines
and across the face of Europe) impact libraries

- explore how migration activities and academic interest in migration
studies have had an impact on the content and focus of cultural
production (literature and other arts) and book publishing in Europe.

Individual papers should be twenty minutes in length and may be in
English or in French.  Simultaneous translations will be available.
Panel proposals will comprise three speakers. Papers should form the
basis for a collection of proceedings.  Proposals and abstracts are
due by April 1, 2003.  Electronic submissions are encouraged.

For the full conference announcement and further information, see the

Please send panel proposals and paper abstracts (300 words max)
addressing the paper's theme and conclusion, along with a short
biographical note to:
