Lead the Library 2.012 Global Conversation – Final Call for Presentation Proposals


It’s back-to-school time for many of you, signifying the countdown to the highly anticipated Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference. The global forum about the future of libraries in the digital age is just around the corner, October 3-5, 2012. And that means the deadline for submitting your presentation proposals is even closer. Don’t panic yet, though. You still have a little time to put together your proposal.

Take the next week to write an abstract of your talk and submit it online. Your entire presentation does not have to be completed. We just need an outline of what you plan to address. The deadline to submit your proposal is September 15, 2012. Everyone is welcome to submit a presentation proposal and attend this free event.

If the deadline of September 15 is absolutely out of the question, you might be in luck. We understand that this time of year is one of the busiest, and you may be feeling overwhelmed. If that describes you, there’s a post-deadline submission process, giving you an additional week to submit your presentation proposal. Post-deadline submissions must be received by September 22, 2012, and will be considered only after the full review of those submitted on time. Acceptances will be contingent on available conference time slots and given in order of submission date.

The Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference presentations will cover six subject strands:

  • STRAND 1: Libraries – Physical and Virtual Learning Spaces
  • STRAND 2: Librarians & Information Professionals – Evolving Professional Roles in Today’s World
  • STRAND 3: Content & Creation – Organizing and Creating Information
  • STRAND 4: Changing Delivery Methods
