The conference location will be on the campus of the University of Texas, Austin at the AT&T Conference Center. Some sessions will also be a part of an online conference. Topics include managing, selecting, assessing and marketing e-resources as well as issues in digital rights and relationships in and out of libraries.

View Track Descriptions:

Proposal Deadline: Proposals will be evaluated as they are received, and priority may be given to those who submit early. The Proposal Deadline is October 30, 2009.

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. We will also hold a period of open voting to allow potential attendees to help shape the program. Proposals should be for original work that has not been published. We may request that some presenters combine sessions with complementary subject matter.

Compensation: Presenters receive 50% off the cost of registration. Presenters asked to participate in an ER&L Online Conference will receive free conference registration.

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.
