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
  • Coding
  • Gaming or gamification
  • Augmented and/or virtual reality
  • Social media and marketing
  • Apps – creating, curating, evaluating
  • Responsive Design

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.
Please submit your proposals here.
