Internet Librarian International – Call for Speakers


Information Today invites you to submit your presentation ideas for this year’s Internet Librarian International – THE innovation and technology conference that attracts hundreds of global library and information professionals each year.

Taking place in London on 20 – 22 October 2014, we’re seeking practical case studies, How-Tos and discussions in a variety of new formats – see below – that promote the exchange of knowledge and experience, and demonstrate how you are using transformative new ideas and services to make a positive impact on your organisation. The full Call for Speakers is available here.

How are services evolving? What changes can we make to ensure our communities thrive? Which new technologies and business models are the most appropriate now, and where should we focus our attentions next?

As always, we welcome contributions from all types of libraries – public, academic, government, national or commercial – as well as those working outside a ‘traditional’ library setting.

This year’s Call for Speakers has four main categories:

  • Transforming library and information services and roles
  • Innovation in content
  • Innovative technologies
  • Innovation in search and discovery
  • PLUS Case studies and workshops

  • Teachmeet/unconference contributors
  • Workshop leaders
  • Panellists

The submissions deadline is 11 April 2014, but don’t delay your submission until then. Now’s the time to share your expertise, and be a part of this influential and forward-thinking event -Submit today.
