Spring 2016 Presentations by Library Faculty and Academic Professionals

Spring saw University of Illinois Library faculty and academic professionals traveling the world both physically and virtually to give keynotes, present webinars, and participate in panels. Topics included extending information literacy capacity to better serve international students or to include intersections with scholarly communication, eighteenth century ritual and popular culture, support for underrepresented groups in technology, and more.
