IFLA Division IV – Support of the Profession and SET are hosting a series of webinars for LIS students
The IFLA Division IV – Support of the Profession – is hosting A Webinar Series for LIS students. These webinars aim to create a place for students to share their projects, research, and ideas about different topics related to libraries. Each month – April through May 2021 – will address a different theme and a new call for proposals will be issued for that month. All webinars are held online and are open to everyone (no registration fees).
May’s theme is “Projects in the Libraries - Ideas, Innovations, Initiatives”.
We are interested in hearing about the innovative out-of-the-box projects you have created or helped create in a library. Your proposal could also include abstract ideas that you believe would be a great project.
The proposal may speak to:
- Project goals
- Innovative aspect of the project
- Benefits of the project for library patrons
- New possibilities for the library through the project
- Outcome of the project
- Project assessment
Library and Information Science students at all levels are encouraged to submit a proposal about the topic. Proposals (in MS Word) must include::
- Name, title, institution, email of speaker(s);
- Brief biographical statement about each speaker (maximum 100 words);
- Title of proposed presentation;
- Abstract highlighting its relevance to the theme (maximum 400 words).
Accepted participants will receive a certificate from IFLA Division IV for presenting at the webinar. Presentations will be delivered online by the presenter, in PowerPoint format. Each presentation will last for 25 minutes, including 5-10 minutes for questions and answers.
- Deadline for submission is 12 May 2021.
- Three proposals will be accepted for presentation and the accepted participants will be notified by 19 May 2021.
- This month’s webinar is held on 26 May 2021 (Time will be confirmed depending on the time zones of the speakers).
