REMINDER! CFP still open! Proposals are due November 30, 2017.

 

Registration is now open! Early bird registration is only $35 for great discussions of scholarly communications and research in libraries. Register here: https://www.lib.utk.edu/emplibs2018/registration/

 

Do you support faculty researchers or graduate student researchers?

Or, do you do your own research?

Then we have a conference for you! 

 

Please join us for the 4th Empirical Librarians conference, EmpLibs18. EmpLibs18 is a mini-conference on librarians and research, and will be held on February 16, 2018, at the University of Tennessee Conference Center in Knoxville, TN. 

 

The keynote speaker will be the incomparable Carol Tenopir. A pre-conference is available on getting started in publishing as a librarian. Concurrent sessions will be offered on scholarly communications and on doing research in libraries. Past feedback on this conference has said how much attendees enjoyed the chance to network with other librarians interested in research and researcher support, and how useful the sessions were on improving the role of libraries in scholarship. Come join us!

 

We are also still seeking presentation proposals from librarians, library professionals, and LIS students on our two conference topic tracks:

 

(1) supporting original research, through faculty and graduate outreach, scholarly communications, etc.; and

 

(2) doing research in libraries.

 

All proposals are subject to double-blind peer review.

 

We are particularly interested in hearing practical ideas for researcher support and concrete discussions of methods for librarian research. Our experience is that the more we learn about doing research the better we are at supporting research, and vice versa. For that reason this conference brings together librarians who are researchers with librarians who support researchers, in order to share all manner of knowledge about research!

 

This would be a great forum for presenters to revisit an already-presented project but focus on the “how to” of techniques you used instead of the findings.

 

Please submit proposals for concurrent sessions, panels, and/or lightning talks at https://www.lib.utk.edu/emplibs2018/cfp/ by November 30, 2017.

 

Empirical Librarians is a small conference focused on librarians doing research and librarians supporting researchers. EmpLibs18 will be a one-day conference with a half-day preconference. The conference will be held at the University of Tennessee Conference Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, on Friday, February 16th, 2018, from 9:00am to 4:30pm. An optional writers’ preconference will be included for interested librarians on Thursday afternoon from 1-5pm. Empirical Librarians is co-sponsored by the UT University Libraries and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T) library.

 

For questions or more information, please contact Nina Exner at ninae [at] ncat.edu before November 22. Thanks!
