ER&L is currently seeking workshop proposals and ER&L 101 courses for the 2018 conference, to be held March 4-7, 2018 in Austin, Texas.
What is an ER&L Workshop?
A workshop is a 4-hour intensive course designed to take the attendee into subject matter with a knowledgeable instructor. Workshops are typically interactive with instruction spanning exercises and practical applications to supplement the instruction. Workshops will be held 1-5 pm on Sunday, April 2nd and Wednesday, April 5th.
NEW FOR 2018: ER&L 101
Along with workshops, ER&L is also looking for half-day courses to help introduce an attendee to a foundational area of librarianship (such as licensing, e-book management, troubleshooting) or an emerging but important topic starting at an introductory level. These courses would not require background knowledge of the topic and would be appropriate for a practitioner new to e-resources or as an introduction to a new topic. These courses will be held 1-5 pm Sunday, March 4th and will be part of a larger set of 101 sessions throughout the ER&L conference.
Submission Deadline: Friday, August 18, 2017

We hear a lot about how to handle difficult patrons, cybersecurity, and protecting patron data. However, other areas of security and privacy often get overlooked. Have you thought about your library’s equipment and even the building itself?
On September 21, 2017, Amigos Library Services will be hosting an online conference, Privacy and Security for Today’s Library, where we will explore why security and privacy is currently a hot topic for libraries. Has your library addressed issues related to the wide spectrum of security and privacy? If so, would you share your story in a 45-minute session? We are interested in presenters from public, academic, and special libraries. For the opportunity to speak at our online conference, please submit your proposal by Friday, July 7. Don’t worry if you’ve never presented online; it’s easy, and we are happy to train you and provide technical support during your presentation. Submit your proposal today at https://www.amigos.org/node/4518.
