cfp CCLI 2017: New Directions in Library Instruction and Scholarly Communications

There is a call for papers for The California Conference on Library Instruction (CCLI) 2017: New Directions in Library Instruction and Scholarly Communications, which will be held in San Francisco, USA, on May 5 2017. Proposals are solicited "about the intersection of information literacy instruction and scholarly communications." The deadline for submissions is 14 October 2016.

"College and university libraries are taking an increasing role in guiding scholarly communications activities on their campuses. As scholarly communications have evolved in the direction of open access and sharing of data, information literacy instruction continues to evolve in order to adapt to a rapidly changing research environment. These major shifts offer ripe territory for collaborative innovation at the crossroads. We are interested in presentations from librarians and other faculty with a focus on 2-year / community colleges and 4-year colleges and universities (first-year experience, upper-division instruction, and graduate instruction).
Potential topics to explore include curriculum design, assessment, or instructional design practice as they relate to digital humanities, data visualization, data management, open access scholarship, or open educational resources."
You can propose either a breakout session (60 minute presentations and workshops) or a lightning talk (5 - 7 minute presentations). More information at
