IOLUG Fall 2016 Conference – Let Our Powers Combine: Engage. Partner. Inspire

Indiana Wesleyan University North Campus

How can we join together to increase awareness of the value, impact and services provided by libraries and library professionals in the academic, public and online settings? The IOLUG Program Committee is inviting proposals around the theme of proving the value and worth of the library. Specifically, how are you demonstrating the value of your library? What emerging technologies are you using to display your contribution to your institution or community either online or in person? How can we work together to inspire a spirit of advocacy?

We encourage presentations that are practical, hands-on, and include take-awayable tools, techniques, and/or strategies that librarians can implement to improve their resources and services for students, patrons, faculty, etc. Consider the following topics:

Promoting open educational resources (OER) and affordable learning materials
Analytics and metrics
Supporting diversity
Improved service delivery and job performance
Digital media implementation
New library initiatives
Innovation and community engagement
Please specify in your proposal whether users will be expected to bring their own devices, or if you will need the use of a computer lab.

Submit your proposal today!
Deadline is Friday, September 2
