Proposal Evaluation: The committee will evaluate each proposal on the basis of subject matter (including, but not limited to, the issues listed in the topic descriptions), clarity, and timeliness. Proposals should be for original work that has not been published. We may request that some presenters combine sessions with complementary subject matter.

More info: ER&L provides a forum for information professionals to explore ideas, trends, and technologies related to electronic resources and digital services. The idea of this event is to bring together stakeholders inside and outside of the library to look at the impact the digital environment has on library collections, access to resources, and our organizations. We invite various perspectives and approaches to managing, promoting and accessing electronic resources. We hope to foster collaborative, cross-departmental, cross-community approaches to
the issues e-resources have brought to our environment.

Questions: Please direct questions about the Call for Proposals to Bonnie Tijerina (bonnie.tijerina@gmail.com) or Elizabeth Winter(elizabeth.winter@library.gatech.edu). Please direct questions related to preconferences to Xan Arch(xanadu@stanford.edu).
