Libraries have always been at the forefront of technology. From originally being one of the only places to offer public computers to library automation to high-tech media labs, libraries work hard to bridge the digital divide and offer the most current and broad access to research and information. The IOLUG Program Committee is sending out this Call for Proposals to hear about your technology projects, both past and present. We invite proposals that show us how far we’ve come with technology or give us insight into where we’re going and what’s next for libraries. For this anniversary conference, we especially welcome proposals from past presenters. We would love to hear updates on your projects since you last presented, whether that was one year or twenty-one years ago.

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. Please consider the following topics when preparing your proposals:

  • 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
  • When to use digital vs. analog technologies
  • The evolution of library technologies

Please include in your proposal whether you would like participants to have their own computers or devices, as well as any special needs you would like for your presentation

Deadline for submission is September 22nd. Get ideas for your presentation from
