Internet Librarian International 2006: Call for Speakers

Information Today invites proposals for presentations at Internet Librarian International 2006, to be held at the Copthorne Tara Hotel in London, UK, 16-17 October 2006. The emphasis is on the practical rather than theoretical, and on case studies and proposals about initiatives in your library, not product pitches or overviews. If you would like to be considered as a speaker, please go to to submit your ideas (deadline: 30 March 2006).

Possible topics (but don’t let this limit your imagination!) include:

Web search
Digital libraries/collections
Social software and social networking
Blogs, wikis, podcasts
Libraries as publishers
Taxonomies, folksonomies
Gaming in the library
Information policy
Web site usability
Web 2.0
Library 2.0
Open access and open source
Distance learning

If your proposal is selected, the primary speaker will receive a complimentary registration to the full conference, which includes lunches and a reception.
