*** Please excuse cross posting ***

ER&L is currently seeking workshop proposals and ER&L 101 courses for the 2019 conference, to be held March 3-6, 2019 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 1-5pm on Sunday, March 3rd and Wednesday, March 6th.

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 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; Intro to authentication

Submission Deadline: Friday, August 31, 2018
