Information Literacy and Academic and Research Libraries Sections

The Information Literacy (IL) and the Academic and Research Libraries (ARL) Sections of IFLA will be holding a joint open program at the IFLA General Conference in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, August 10-14, 2008. IL educators or practitioners are invited to submit proposals for papers related to the theme:

Return on Investment: Learners’ Outcomes in Information Literacy. Do they really learn?

From high school to university current trends indicate a small but growing number of studies about learning outcomes for IL. Effective assessment of student learning outcomes is a critical component to improving information literacy programs.

In this call for papers, we are interested in a wide range of techniques that provide objective measures for assessing students’ information competencies. We are looking for speakers who can relate experiences from a practitioner’s perspective, as well as presentations of research on assessment of IL programs. The focus can be on diagnoses concerning incoming students, evaluating students’ progress towards achieving IL skills or exit assessments. Here are some questions to consider:

How are they used to evaluate the IL courses quality and their cost-effectiveness?
What indicators should be identified to measure competency or fluency?
What comparison can be made between different contexts, levels or disciplines?
Do assessment tools vary according to program needs?
What is the impact on pedagogical methods?

The proposal should include a title, an abstract of 200-400 words and a one-page biographical sketch for each author, with current employment information and title, containing a selected list of previous presentations and publications. Submissions will be rated on how well they fit with the program theme. The abstract should be submitted as a MS Word file by e-mail, in English, no later than 30 January 2008 to:

MERLOT – Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching

8th International Conference
August 7 – 10, 2008
Minneapolis Hilton

The MERLOT International Conference (MIC) provides numerous opportunities to share, learn, and participate in conversations about teaching and learning with technology from experts and MERLOT users from around the world.

Trailblazers do more than keep people on the right path. They help people see where to begin and provide direction. How can educators and users of instructional technology around the world prepare for a future filled with technology that provides content at a faster-and-faster pace? How can instructional technology be used to enhance teaching and learning? Who will organize all this change? This year’s Conference Committee expects that we will all do this together.

MIC08 offers a full day of pre-conference workshops followed by two-and-one-half days of colleague to colleague presentations. The Conference also includes Corporate Sponsor presentation and exhibits, presentations from MERLOT Award winners, and opportunities to gather over food and beverage. The Pre-conference sessions begin on Thursday morning, August 7. The full conference agenda begins with a Welcome Reception Thursday evening and ends at noon on Sunday, August 10.

The Conference Committee invites proposals on the tracks listed below. Proposal deadline is February 15, 2008.

“Blazing the Trail” Conference Tracks

The MIC08 Conference invites proposals based on the tracks below. The Committee encourages proposals from diverse constituents (faculty, students, administrators, librarians, etc) in a variety of disciplines based on the Tracks below.

Track 1 – Adopting, Adapting, and Authoring Digital Learning Resources
Track 2 – Committed and Connected International Communities of Learning through Technology
Track 3 – Researching New Learning Paradigms and New Teaching Models
Track 4 – New Paths: Expanding Teaching and Learning Opportunities with Web 2.0 Track 5 – Reinventing Libraries in the Digital Age
Track 6 – Engaging and Emerging Faculty Development Processes
Track 7 – Community of Practice: Harvesting the Promise of Technology in Education

For 2008, the MERLOT Conference Committee has selected to highlight Education as the featured Community of Practice. Teacher education, Libraries, and Faculty Development comprise this featured Community of Practice. Committee members hope that many faculty members will share this highlighted track with students involved in Pre-K through 16 classrooms and will propose joint sessions, panels, posters, and under/graduate research related to the conference theme.

TRIVIA: Voices of Feminism i

TRIVIA: Voices of Feminism is now accepting submissions for two issues:

issue #7/8, an open double issue: deadline June 13, 2008.
see our submission guidelines at

issue #9, *Are lesbians going extinct?* : deadline December 12, 2008.

In an essay written in 1983, Nicole Brossard wrote: “/Une lesbienne qui ne reinvente pas le monde est une lesbienne en voie de disparition./” (A lesbian who does not reinvent the world is a lesbian going extinct.) At that time, the phrase made very good sense. As writers, thinkers, activists, and in our day-to-day lives we felt (many of us) compelled to reinvent a world in which we were for the most part invisible if not unthinkable, a world whose values we largely rejected. Today, over 20 years later, we are accepted, even embraced, by mainstream culture– as co-workers, wives, mothers, talk show hosts– in ways we could not have imagined then. But are we still reinventing the world? Is there still a radical edge to the word “lesbian”? Or are we now, by Brossard’s definition, a disappearing species?

We want to hear from young lesbians as well as anyone who ever embraced and/or lived this notion of lesbians as political trailblazers, radical visionaries. If you still identify as lesbian, what does it mean to you to be a lesbian today? In what relationship do your politics stand to your sexuality? Do you still see lesbians as a vanguard? See yourself as reinventing the world? If you no longer identify as lesbian, are there political/cultural reasons for this? Are there aspects of lesbian existence that you miss? Are glad to be free of? Do you still identify as a political trailblazer, a radical visionary? We welcome responses in the form of essays, poems, stories, creative nonfiction, and any in-between genres.

TRIVIA, a free twice-yearly online literary journal, publishes literary essays, experimental prose, poetry, translations, and reviews. We encourage writers to take risks with language and form so as to give their ideas the most original and vital expression possible. TRIVIA’s larger purpose is to foster a body of rigorous, creative and independent feminist thought. See our submission guidelines for details :

TRIVIA : Voices of Feminism is an online relaunch of TRIVIA: A Journal of Ideas, an award-winning international feminist literary magazine published from 1982 to 1995. The online journal is a team effort by veteran feminist editors Lise Weil, founding editor of Trivia: A Journal of Ideas, and Harriet Ellenberger, founding editor of Sinister Wisdom, the world’s longest running lesbian journal, in collaboration with feminist geek web developer Susan Kullmann.

Information for Social Change – Science and Technology for Utopias



The Summer 2009 issue of the online journal Information for Social Change (ISC) will focus on the theme of SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY FOR UTOPIAS.

This issue of ISC aims to document 21st century science and technology initiatives designed for utopian societies. The intended audience is hands-on Utopian makers, as well as those individuals and groups who share in the vision of Utopian futures.

ISC seeks submissions in the following two areas aimed at encouraging adaptations, constructive intercultural dialogue, and international participation:

1) General action research, development based participatory action research, case studies, and DIY (do-it-yourself) aspects of creating low cost, long term science and technology solutions to our present ecological mess, which also make for viable long term social justice (e.g., ethical aid, alternative transportation, living labs, green housing, and slow food movements) and the role of library and information workers and work therein.

2) Thoughts on information ecology, sharing, and recycling as they relate to the production of human and natural resources and how best to achieve egalitarian societies in which there is free flow of information (e.g., social, cultural, communication, and information systems which combine ICT within egalitarian decision making processes in the context of non-proprietary systems and free information movements).

Anyone interested in contributing work related to the above expressed theme is invited to share their ideas with issue co-editors Martyn Lowe ( & Toni Samek (

Whilst encouraging rigorous debate, the journal exists primarily for workers and practitioners, so simple and clear English is preferable. Articles should, where possible, be between 500 and 2500 words. This is to ensure a wide coverage of topics in each issue. However, longer articles may be excerpted in the journal and the full text made available from the author(s), if you wish. As well as articles we are also interested in shorter pieces (including letters, review articles, and poems).

The closing date for final submission is December 10 (HUMAN RIGHTS DAY), 2008.

Breaking Boundaries, Forging Connections: Feminist Interdisciplinary Theory and Practice

A conference sponsored by the Nancy’s Chair in Women’s Studies Mount Saint Vincent University Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

April 11 – 13 2008

Keynote Speaker:
Dr Marsha Hanen
former President of the University of Winnipeg,and pioneer in the development of interdisciplinary studies in Canada.

The host of this conference, the Nancy’s Chair in Women’s Studies, was endowed by well-known Toronto-based feminist and philanthropist Nancy Ruth, to raise awareness of women’s issues by bringing to campus distinguished scholars in women’s studies and activists who have contributed to the advancement of women.

Mount Saint Vincent University, the home of the Nancy’s Chair, has a proud history as a leader in innovative and creative learning approaches with an emphasis on women, academic excellence, distinctive programs, and a personal approach to education.

Women’s studies and feminist theory are boldly, creatively interdisciplinary in establishing strong connections between scholarly inquiry and women’s lives. They are reconfiguring disciplinary boundaries and academic structures while honouring scholarly integrity and activist commitments in universities and other post-secondary institutions, and in the world outside the academy. Feminist scholars and activists have developed innovative ways of navigating within traditional academic disciplines and institutional structures, and drawing on the resources of multiple, often diverse, disciplines, practices, and ways of knowing.

Breaking Boundaries, Forging Connections will explore the promise and the challenges of interdisciplinarity in feminist and women’s studies, and in the activism it informs and is informed by at the beginning of the twenty-first century, in Canada and internationally. We welcome contributions that present interdisciplinarity at work in diverse formats and modes of address, critical reflections on interdisciplinarity as such, performance, video and narrative presentations, workshops, roundtables and panels, and contributions that attest to the prospects and productive collaborations interdisciplinary commitments can animate.

Proposals might:

* celebrate some of the successes – the triumphs – of interdisciplinary work, showing by example how it can be greater than the sum of its parts

* show by example how the very idea of interdisciplinarity reconfigures fixed conceptions of “expertise”

* illustrate how new forms of interdisciplinarity have succeeded in bringing together the “two cultures”: the sciences and the humanities

* present possibilities for combining insights and issues derived from several disciplines

* contrast interdisciplinarity that derives from group connections and interdisciplinary work engaged individually

* consider how interdisciplinary inquiry helps to cross an (imaginary) divide between the university or college and the community

* present research that has developed out of inquiry that crosses two or more disciplines

In short, we welcome contributions that demonstrate the creative potential of interdisciplinary work, that show how interdisciplinarity counteracts the narrowness that can result from over-specialization in the academy and in professional schools, and/or that explore interdisciplinarity in public responses to research and practice. And we welcome proposals that expand on, challenge, or depart from the possibilities outlined here. Given the nature of this theme, we particularly welcome panel presentations or poster sessions that pose questions for discussion, mini-workshops, and mixed-media presentations.
Single papers will be allocated a maximum of 25 minutes’ reading time.
Panels may be allocated a longer presentation time.

Conference presentations may be considered for publication in
Atlantis: A Women’s Studies Journal.

Submission deadline: Friday, January 25, 2008

Submission format: Please submit either a complete paper (not to exceed 3000 words), a long abstract (1000 words), or a 1000-word detailed description of a panel or workshop, listing participants and indicating any special presentation requirements.

Submit paper copies only to:

Nancy’s Chair in Women’s Studies
ISW 4, Mount Saint Vincent University
166 Bedford Highway
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada B3M 2J6

Please direct all inquiries to Dr. Lorraine Code at
