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.
The 2015 Biennial Conference of the Association of College & Research Libraries will include presentations by University of Illinois Library faculty and academic professionals on topics including reference services, data management, technical services, the digital humanities, area studies librarianship, and more.
ACRL begins with preconference activities Wednesday, March 25 and runs through Saturday, March 28. If you will be there, consider dropping by to see one of the following presentations!
The University of Illinois Library showed the campus the research it does at its recent 2014 Library Research Showcase (Couldn’t make it? Posters and videos of lightning talks are archived in IDEALS!). That was just a peek into the world of research achievements here, and the rest of the fall saw library faculty and academic professionals traveling the world presenting on a wide range of topics. These presentations included research, and librarian-led workshops that let others benefit from the work we do at Illinois. Below you’ll find some of the places we’ve been to help shape the future of libraries!
