ER&L is currently seeking workshop proposals and ER&L 101 courses for the
2018 conference, to be held March 4-7, 2018 in Austin, Texas.
*What is an ER&L Workshop?*
A workshop is a 4-hour intensive course designed to take the attendee into
subject matter with a knowledgeable instructor. Workshops are typically
interactive with instruction spanning exercises and practical applications
to supplement the instruction. Workshops will be held 1-5 pm on Sunday,
April 2nd and Wednesday, April 5th.
*NEW FOR 2018: ER&L 101*
Along with workshops, ER&L is also looking for half-day courses to help
introduce an attendee to a foundational area of librarianship (such as
licensing, e-book management, troubleshooting) or an emerging but important
topic starting at an introductory level. These courses would not require
background knowledge of the topic and would be appropriate for a
practitioner new to e-resources or as an introduction to a new topic. These
courses will be held 1-5 pm Sunday, March 4th and will be part of a larger
set of 101 sessions throughout the ER&L conference.
Potential 101 topics might include (but are not limited to):
- Troubleshooting e-resources (link resolvers, A-Z lists, discovery
layers, knowledgebases, etc.)
- E-resource workflows/lifecycle
- Usage statistics
- Intro to tools (ERMs, MARCedit, OpenRefine, EZProxy, etc.)
- Intro to coding
- Intro to APIs
- E-book management
- Project management
- Data visualization
*Submission Deadline*: Friday, August 25, 2017
Workshop proposals may be submitted via ProposalSpace at
