Call for presentations – IOLUG Spring 2017 Conference – May 19, 2017

Cloudy with a Chance of Technology

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

Submit your presentation idea here:

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.
