Call for Workshops: ER&L - Austin Texas, March 4-7, 2018

ER&L is currently seeking workshop proposals and ER&L 101 courses for the 2018 conference, to be held March 4-7, 2018 in Austin, Texas.

What is an ER&L Workshop?
A workshop is a 4-hour intensive course designed to take the attendee into subject matter with a knowledgeable instructor. Workshops are typically interactive with instruction spanning exercises and practical applications to supplement the instruction. Workshops will be held 1-5 pm on Sunday, April 2nd and Wednesday, April 5th.

NEW FOR 2018: ER&L 101
Along with workshops, ER&L is also looking for half-day courses to help introduce an attendee to a foundational area of librarianship (such as licensing, e-book management, troubleshooting) or an emerging but important topic starting at an introductory level. These courses would not require background knowledge of the topic and would be appropriate for a practitioner new to e-resources or as an introduction to a new topic. These courses will be held 1-5 pm Sunday, March 4th and will be part of a larger set of 101 sessions throughout the ER&L conference.
