CALL FOR PROPOSALS
ER&L Conference Planning Committee encourages you to submit a proposal
for the 2012 Electronic Resources & Libraries Conference!
ER&L is seeking to advance the discussion in these following areas
with this 2012 Call for Proposals, with detailed descriptions included
• Managing e-Resources in Libraries
• Collection Development and Assessment
• Workflow & Organizations
• External & User Relationships
• Emerging and Future Technologies
• Scholarly Communication & Licensing
• Library as Publisher
Proposal Evaluation: The committee will evaluate each proposal on the
basis of subject matter (including, but not limited to, the issues
listed in the topic descriptions), clarity, and timeliness. We will
also hold a period of open voting to allow potential attendees to help
shape the program. Proposals should be for original work that has not
been published. We may request that some presenters combine sessions
with complementary subject matter.
Proposal Types: ER&L is looking for individual presentations, panels
with differing perspectives, and half day, hands-on preconference
workshops. When submitting a proposal, choose one proposal type.
