Join the Global Conversation
The Library 2.011 conference presents a unique chance to participate in a global conversation on the current and future state of libraries. The conference will be held online November 2-3, 2011, in multiple time zones and languages and is free to attend!
This is the official call for presentations.
There are six subject strands including the changing roles of libraries in today’s world, digital age learning cultures, and changes in accessing and organizing information. To view the complete list of conference strands, click here.
Presentations shall be noncommercial and between 20 and 60 minutes including Q&A. Sessions will be held in the web conferencing platform Blackboard Collaborate (previously Elluminate/Wimba). Sessions will be recorded and released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License, and presenters will automatically agree to these terms when submitting their presentations.
Presentation proposals are due September 15, and presentation acceptances will be communicated by September 30.
In addition to presenting, there are many other opportunities to participate in this global event.
Volunteer – Join the volunteer group at http://www.library20.com/group/library2011conferencemoderatorvolunteers. Volunteers will assist in promoting the conference as broadly as possible. Moderators for conference sessions are also needed.
Advisory Board Member – Sign up for the international advisory board at http://www.library20.com/page/international-advisory-board. The advisory board members will promote conference participation and attendance, find partner organizations in their regions, train and support presenters in their geographical region and local languages, and if possible, moderate sessions during the conference.
Partner – Apply to be a conference partner at http://www.library20.com/page/conference-partners. Noncommercial organizations that are primarily or substantively focused on libraries, librarians, librarianship, or library programs are encouraged to become conference partners. Organizations will be listed with a link, logo, and a short description and will be provided with a "spotlight" speaker session in the conference. Conference partnership is free.
We are very excited about this conference and look forward to your participation!
