Lightning Talks

Lightning Talks provide attendees with valuable information in a less formal manner than a Contributed Paper or Poster.

Topics can cover anything related to libraries: successful (or unsuccessful) projects, new services, future initiatives, emerging technologies, etc. The sky’s the limit! Each presenter will be given 2 minutes to cover the topic and 2 minutes for questions. Presenters are encouraged to speak extemporaneously without PowerPoint.

Submit your Lightning Talk proposal using the online form.

Include with your submission:
  • Lightning Talk Title
  • Description of topic in 100 words or less
  • Presenter name(s), email(s), and institution(s)

Round Tables

Do you have successful ideas or strategies that you want to share with other librarians? Round Tables serve to promote discussions among attendees who have a shared interest in a topic, idea, workflow, or product. The emphasis is on informal open discussion and the generation of new ideas. Consider facilitating a Round Table to share your expertise, get feedback, and exchange ideas.

Submit your Round Table proposal using the online form.

Include with your submission:
  • Round Table Title
  • Description of topic in 200 words or less
  • Facilitator name(s), email(s), and institution(s)
