Vote for the Lineup at The Innovative Library Classroom 2015

Help us select a dynamic lineup for The Innovative Library Classroom 2015

We received a large number of high quality proposals for our day-long conference, and need your help choosing the best and most innovative presentations, lightning talks, and conversation starters.  In addition to using the traditional peer review process, we are crowdsourcing reviews of the proposals by opening up public voting on the proposals.  Although conference coordinators will make the final selections, the decisions will be made based on results from both the peer review process and the public voting. 

Anyone who is considering attending TILC 2015 can vote.  All voting is anonymous, and we ask that you please vote only once.  Read the proposals and submit your votes now:

The Innovative Library Classroom 2015: New Wine, New Bottles


Final call for proposals!

Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Radford University, Radford, VA

“This is the best freaking conference I’ve ever attended. The content was perfect, and the conference ran like a well-oiled machine. I was VERY impressed and I can’t wait to come back!” –evaluation comments from 2014 attendee

The Innovative Library Classroom (TILC) 2014 was an amazing success, thanks to wonderful presenters and participants. We are now planning the 2015 event with the theme New Wine, New Bottles.

The idiom “Old wine, new bottles”  refers to ideas which are packaged as new but in reality are same-old, same-old.  We want to hear about your truly innovative projects, thoughts, and explorations.  And sometimes old ideas really are improved with new packaging, so if you have a new “bottle” for a sound idea, submit it!  Whether your preferred drink is wine, beer, soda, or something else, we want to hear from you.

Proposals are invited for three different session types:

  • 50 minute presentation
  • 50 minute conversation starters
  • 7 minute lightning talk

For The Innovative Library Classroom 2015, two levels of review will take place.  In addition to the traditional peer review process, 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.  

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.  More information about IRSQ is available on the IRSQ website: 
http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wirs20/current#.Uouk8cTIh8E

Submission deadline: November, 21, 2014

Acceptance notification: December 15, 2014

We expect registration costs to be about $35.

Full details and a link to the proposal form are available at: http://innovativelibraryclassroom.blogspot.com/
