Creating Connections: Extending Our Instructional Reach Through Collaborations and Community Partnerships

Proposal Deadline: Friday, March 22nd

How has your library developed successful instruction-related collaborations with other libraries, departments, organizations or community members? Do you have an idea percolating that you would like to “workshop” with LILi conference participants for feedback…or perhaps gain a new instruction focused partnership?  Collaborations start with relationships and interactions between people.  By working beyond traditional boundaries libraries can deliver better instruction, outcomes and value for their patrons and communities. This has become especially important for today’s libraries regardless of type, size or location, allowing them to surpass what each could accomplish on their own. 

Lifelong learning and information literacy (IL) development occurs in countless contexts and communities, within and outside the library. LILi invites you to share your library or program’s innovative instruction-related collaborations and relationships by submitting proposals with practical application with potential for adoption across library types. Possible topics include, but are not limited to the following, all as related to making connections in order to foster information literacy and empowerment:

  • Instructional outreach initiatives
  • Instruction-related programming for various populations, including children, teens, seniors, immigrants, English language learners, and other marginalized groups 
  • Workshops, one-shots, credit courses, and training sessions supporting students/users/patrons in online and face-to-face settings
  • Embedded librarianship collaborations
  • Teaching through community archiving
  • Teaching partnerships between libraries and advocacy organizations
  • Academic, school or public library instructional partnerships
  • News and media literacy
  • Digital citizenship 
  • Service learning initiatives
  • Guiding people through new methods of information discovery
  • Teaching with transformative technologies
  • Creating lifelong learning opportunities 
  • Unlearning, re-learning, decolonizing, or other relevant info-pedagogy
  • Building networks and engagement to promote information services and instruction
  • Local, international, and digital partnerships and best practices  

LILi invites you to submit proposals for engaging and interactive presentations with practical applications by March 22, 2019. Notification of acceptance by May 15, 2019.   

The conference will include a diversity of sessions including 10-20 minute presentations, brief lightning talks and poster sessions.  Please note your preferred presentation formats when prompted on the registration form.

Tear Down the Walls

Digital Frontiers welcomes submissions for the 2019 conference, Tear Down The Walls, hosted by UT Austin in Austin, TX on September 26-28, 2019. The conference features Keynote Addresses from Dorothy Kim (Brandeis University) and Alex Gil (Columbia University).

Digital Frontiers is a conference and community that brings together the makers and users of digital resources for the humanities. Established in 2012 to respond to the need for an affordable, high-quality conference that addresses the emerging field of digital humanities from a variety of perspectives, Digital Frontiers is a truly interdisciplinary experience.

Digital Humanities scholars deal with numerous barriers and borders as they interrogate the world around them through a digital lens. We invite participants to think critically about the composition of these walls, of their implicit and explicit functions, and the colonial practices by which many were and are still being created. Some of these barriers are created by a community for self-preservation, while others are built to perpetuate structural inequalities and discriminatory practices. Not all walls are physical. As a community, Digital Frontiers has interrogated the frontier and the border in digital scholarship as scenes of both conflict and creativity. In 2019, we invite scholars, students, librarians, archivists, gallery and museum professionals, and community practitioners to interrogate these boundaries and amplify the weaknesses we can use to tear down those walls that serve only those gatekeepers in power. We also encourage reflection on the aftermath: how do we communicate, produce, and exchange knowledge when these walls no longer block the way.

We invite deeper considerations of dismantling barriers in digital scholarship broadly conceived, presented in any of the following formats, with proposals consisting of a 300-500 word abstract:

  • Preconstituted Panels Curate your own panel for a 60-minute session.
  • Individual Scholarly Papers or Presentations Share your work in a 15-minute presentation. (Note: early stage research, project updates, and single-institution “case studies” should be submitted as Posters or an alternative format).
  • Posters Share your early stage research, project updates, manifestos, or single-institution “case studies” in a 36” h x 48” w academic poster.
  • Exhibitions, Installations, Performances, and Alternative Formats
    • Defined broadly to include: art installations, dance, video demonstrations, live game exhibitions, or other embodied and participatory forms of knowledge sharing.
    • Please include your technical, spatial, and time requirements in your proposal.

Proposals will be double reviewed in an open process that emphasizes conversation and community mentoring. All proposals will receive detailed feedback, with final decisions made by the Program Committee.

Key Dates & Deadlines

  • CFP Opens: January 15, 2019
  • CFP Deadline: April 14, 2019
  • Notifications: June 1, 2019

ACRL IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum,

Call for panelists for the ACRL IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum,

2019 ALA Annual Meeting

The IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum is an excellent opportunity for instruction librarians to explore and discuss current topics related to library instruction and information literacy. The steering committee welcomes proposals from individuals interested in participating in a panel discussion on alternatives to deficit models in academic libraries.

Deficit models of education focus on a learner’s weaknesses, including the knowledge, motivation, experiences, or cultural values that they presumably lack. This panel will question the use of deficit models in library instruction and information literacy, and present alternative approaches.

This virtual discussion will take place in advance of the 2019 ALA Annual Meeting: Tuesday, June 11 at 2 PM EST/11 AM PST. No previous experience with virtual presentations is necessary. The committee will work with selected panelists in advance to prepare for the online environment.

If you would like to share your knowledge and work on alternatives to deficit models in academic libraries, submit a proposal to be a panelist for the IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum today!

Application Deadline: March 10, 2019 To submit a proposal, please use the onlinesubmission form Applicants will be notified by March 31, 2019
