What is NETSL?
The New England Technical Services Librarians (NETSL) is a section of the New England Library Association (NELA). Our mission is to bring together all persons interested in technical services for the exchange of ideas and discussion of problems.

What topics are we looking for?
We're seeking proposals for 60-minute breakout or workshop sessions and 7-minute lightning talks related to our 2022 theme: "Our Work Supports Everyone: Demonstrating the Value of Technical Services." Technical services staff collaborate with many departments in the library and talks might cover (but are not limited to):

Cataloging and metadata
Discovery services
Description services
Physical processing
Digital asset management
Resource management
Interlibrary loan / resource sharing
Collection management
Relationships with other library and campus departments

You can see titles of past presentations since 2005 at the NETSL website. Please direct any questions to the NETSL Executive Board at [email protected]
