Over the summer, Library Faculty and Academic Professionals were busy presenting all over the world. The topics were as wide-ranging as the innovative addition of video studios in libraries to how oral history plays an important role in collective memory. Some other topics included digital humanities, preserving and searching data, and the many ways librarianship and instruction intersect. The list that follows highlights the places and topics covered by librarians at conferences this summer beyond those at the ALA Annual Conference, as covered in a previous post.
The 2015 Annual Conference of the American Library Association takes place June 25-30 in San Francisco, California. If you’re there, you can find Illinois librarians talking about metadata, privacy, Library and Information Science education, and more. Come see us at one of the events below, or stop and say hello to Illinois librarians throughout the conference leading programs and discussions!
Spring 2015 saw Illinois librarians leading the discussion on topics as diverse as information literacy, comic books, and scholarly communication. In a previous post, you can find the Illinois librarians and academic professionals who presented at the 2015 Biennial Conference of the Association of College & Research Libraries in March 2015. Below are just some of the many other presentations they gave at conferences, special occasions, and more.
