Whether it be changes to our roles as librarians, changes in the technology we use to perform our jobs and that we teach our patrons how to use, or changes to our very library environments, the Library is a constantly changing and evolving entity. Our Fall Program theme is "Library Hacks: New Roles, New Tech, New Spaces," and the IOLUG Program Committee is interested in hearing about ways that you "hack" the way you perform your role, how you design your spaces, or how you find and utilize emerging technologies. What new ideas are you implementing to make you or your library more relevant and engaging to those you serve?

The committee is particularly interested in proposals that address:

· Grassroots approaches to doing things differently
· New Library Spaces - changing/adapting/modifying your physical or digital systems
· MOOCs
· Innovation and innovative ideas
· Digital Literacy
· Hacking Librarianship - new roles/philosophies/opportunities
· Emerging Technologies - how we use and find them to educate ourselves and/or our patrons
· Library Collaborations - with community organizations, other departments on campuses, other schools or academic institutions, etc.
· User Experience or User-Oriented Design
· Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)
· Media Center Innovations
· Assessment

Submit your proposal using the online form by Friday, September 5th.
