If you’re excited to engage in thoughtful conversations about information literacy with your colleagues, start planning your proposals for the 12th annual ILAGO Information Literacy Summit on May 12, 2018 at the Yamhill Valley Campus of Chemeketa Community College in McMinnville, Oregon.

We invite a diverse range of presentations across library environments (e.g. academic, public, school), curriculum, and/or examples of successful collaboration between librarians and external stakeholders.

The IL Summit typically has 60-80 attendees who are eager to hear new ideas and ways to approach information literacy. We invite you to submit proposals for panels, presentations, discussions, and other program formats to run for a total of 45 minutes including Q&A. Longer programs/workshops will be considered on a case-by-case basis; if submitting a longer proposal, please include that in the Comments field.

Program proposals will be accepted until April 6, 2018.

Assessment, the process by which we learn about the needs of our patrons in order to analyze how effective and useful library services are, provides us with the data to evaluate how well we are meeting that goal. It also provides us with the feedback we need to make purposeful adjustments to programs and services, and can even provide evidence of need to administration when proposing new programs and services. It encompasses a plethora of concepts such as: collaborative assessments, data management and visualization, metrics and indicators, methods and tools, organizational issues, teaching and learning, usability, user experience and more!

The IL Summit typically has 60-80 attendees who come from many areas of practice (higher ed, public, K-12) and are eager to hear new ideas and ways to approach information literacy. We invite you to submit proposals for panels, presentations, discussions on best practices, and other programs.

Programs should be designed to run for a total of 45 minutes including Q&A; longer programs/workshops will be considered on a case-by-case basis (if a longer program/workshop is desired, please include that in the Comments field).

The 10th annual ILAGO Information Literacy Summit will be held May 21, 2016 at the Central Oregon Community College campus in Bend, Oregon.
The theme for this year’s IL Summit is “Collaboration,” but we invite a variety of presentations related to information literacy. The theme of “Collaboration” could take many forms, including collaboration among different types of libraries/librarians (e.g. academic, public, school), across the curriculum, and/or examples of successful outreach and collaboration between librarians and external stakeholders. Though public, school, and academic libraries serve different populations, we still all have one goal in common: to provide support to our users in order to help them be successful. One way we can do this is through the collaborative relationships we build within our communities. When librarians are able to collaborate with teachers or instructors, and certainly with each other, students reap the benefits.
