Have writer's block? Hopefully this resource will help librarians identify publishing and presentation opportunities in library & information science, as well as other related fields. I will include calls for papers, presentations, participation, reviewers, and other relevant notices that I find on the web. If you find anything to be posted, please drop me a note. thanks -- Corey Seeman, University of Michigan(firstname.lastname@example.org)

CFP: Cloudy with a Chance of Technology - IOLUG Spring Conference (Indiana - May 19, 2017)
CFP: Cloudy with a Chance of Technology - IOLUG Spring Conference
The Call for Proposals is now open for our Spring 2017 Conference: Cloudy with a Chance of Technology. The Spring Conference will be on May 19th at Indiana Wesleyan University–Indianapolis North, 3777 Priority Way S Dr., Indianapolis, IN 46240.
The forecast for the future of libraries is constantly changing, just as it does in our day-to-day work. The IOLUG Program Committee is sending out this call for proposals to hear about your technology projects. We know that not every project ends up being a sunny day and here is your opportunity to share with others how you weathered the storm.
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:
Digital media implementation
Analytics and metrics
Gaming or gamification
Augmented and/or virtual reality
Social media and marketing
Apps – creating, curating, evaluating
Please specify in your proposal what the forecast for your project was: sunny, partly cloudy, rainy, or thunderstorm. Also include whether you would like participants to have their own computers or devices and any special needs you have for the presentation.
