Share Your Knowledge with a Global Community of Library Advocates


You’ve been thinking about it for a while, and now is the time to submit your talk abstract for the Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference. We want to hear about the exciting research you are doing, success stories, and case studies – your innovative ideas and insight that will benefit the global LIS community and help shape the future of libraries. Please set aside 15 minutes to submit an abstract of your presentation online at

The deadline to submit your proposal is tomorrow, September 15, 2012. Everyone is welcome to submit a presentation proposal and attend this FREE event.


If the deadline of September 15 is absolutely out of the question, you might be in luck. There’s a post-deadline submission process, giving you an additional week to submit your presentation proposal. Post-deadline submissions must be received by September 22, 2012, and will be considered only after the full review of those submitted on time. Acceptances will be contingent on available conference time slots and given in order of submission date.
