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(email@example.com)

CFP: The Delaware Valley Chapter of ACRL - Call for Lightning Talks
The Delaware Valley Chapter of ACRL - Call for Lightning Talks
Practitioners will share examples of their work on a project, a technique used, a resource created, or other strategies that relate to news literacy. Each talk will be 10 minutes or less.
Do you have an example to share? Consider presenting on November 17th! The ACRL DVC planning group is now accepting proposals. Submission deadline is October 30th.
The ACRL Delaware Valley Chapter is now accepting proposals for its Fall 2017 program: Fact, False, or Just Flawed: Critically Examining News in the Age of Truthiness. The event will be held on Friday, November 17, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
Have you developed a new campus partnership, program, or resource that addresses news literacy? Excited about a simple but powerful technique that you want to share with interested colleagues? Submit a lightning round proposal to teach folks to spot false, misleading, and all other shades of duplicitous public discourse. Some topics may include…
Statistics in reporting
Scientific studies in the news
Bias in the news
Evaluating non-textual information (e.g. photos, video, info-graphics)
There is no slide limit, but the round cannot exceed 10 minutes, so practice, practice, practice!
