The Innovative Library Classroom 2015: New Wine, New Bottles

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Radford University, Radford, VA

The idiom “Old wine, new bottles”  refers to ideas which are packaged as new but in reality are same-old, same-old.  We want to hear about your truly innovative projects, thoughts, and explorations.  And sometimes old ideas really are improved with new packaging, so if you have a new “bottle” for a sound idea, submit it!  Whether your preferred drink is wine, beer, soda, or something else, we want to hear from you.We invite proposals for three different session types:

    50 minute presentation
    50 minute conversation starters
    7 minute lightning talk

For The Innovative Library Classroom 2015, two levels of review will take place.  In addition to the traditional peer review process, we will crowdsource interest in the topics submitted by authors.  Abstracts submitted by authors will be blinded for the crowdsourced portion.  Conference coordinators will make the final selections, basing decisions on both the peer review process and the crowdsourced information.

Boston, Massachusetts, the site of the Library History Seminar XIII, provides an apt setting to explore traditions and innovations in libraries. The Boston area is home to many important library innovations in North America, including the first university library and the first large, free municipal library. At the same time, new information institutions continue to be created here, of which the Digital Public Library of America and the Digital Commonwealth of online heritage materials are two recent examples.
