The Information Professional as Author
The call for papers for our 4th Annual Student Conference is now open! Our theme this year is “The Information Professional as Author” and, as always, we are open to a broad interpretation. You are free to consider any type of writing or publishing an information professional / librarian / archivist may be a part of. From an academic researcher, to a practitioner writing a project report. You could consider grant proposals or social media authorship, or authorship in different formats such as audio, video as well as the written word. Presentations can be about a project you have completed or are currently working on or can be academic in nature.
All presentations will be 10 minute lightning presentations. You are free to choose the style of your presentation, you may use Powerpoint, Keynote, PDF or Prezi.
Submissions are now open for current students and graduates of the last three years from any library qualification (UCD, DBS, Ulster University, distance learning). Submissions are also welcome from students and graduates of Archival Studies, Archives and Records Management and Digital Humanities.
