Poster Session & Social on Tuesday, May 8 and Conference on Wednesday, May 9, 2018
Radford University, Radford, VA
“Powerful and inspiring day! It was a joy to network and meet so many people from different schools interested in library instruction. Every part of the conference, from the sessions, posters, to lightning talks provided thought-provoking topics and information. I’m so glad to be a part of this passionate and creative field of librarianship.“- past attendee
“TILC is my favorite conference. Everyone is focused on teaching and learning in libraries and yet it is still small and I can actually talk to folks.“- another participant’s feedback
We are now accepting proposals for TILC 2018. We are thrilled to have Jennifer Ferretti, Digital Initiatives Librarian at Maryland Institute College of Art, as our keynote speaker. She is the creator of the popular “Beyoncé’s Lemonade and Information Resources” LibGuide and in her keynote she will discuss how art is information. You can use this idea as a jumping off point for your proposal, or you can submit anything related to innovative teaching. We like to cast a wide net!
Proposals are invited for three different session types:
- Posters (presented at the Tuesday evening social)
- 50-minute presentations
- 7-minute lightning talks
Two levels of review will take place. In the peer review, submissions will be rated for fit for the session type, relevance, and innovativeness. In addition, we will crowdsource interest in the topics submitted by authors. Abstracts submitted by authors will be blinded for the crowdsourced portion. Conference coordinators will make the final selections, basing decisions on both the peer review process and the crowdsourced information.
Submission deadline: Thursday, November 16, 2017
Acceptance notification: Friday, January 5, 2018
We expect registration costs to be about $45.

Selected papers based on conference presentations will be published, subject to double blind peer review, in a special issue of Internet Reference Services Quarterly dedicated to The Innovative Library Classroom.
