13th Health Libraries Inc. Conference - Call for abstracts
13th Health Libraries Inc. Conference
State Library of Victoria, Melbourne
Friday 21 October 2016
“The (In)visible library”
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
The theme aims to inspire papers and posters related to making the library a core part of an organisation where services and resources may be invisibly embedded and the physical and visible space may be reduced. How are we keeping track of the impact on our organisation? Are we leading the way and contributing, initiating or collaborating on innovative projects – and has this lifted our profile?
As always, library professionals are innovators, doing more with less. It is generally accepted that breaking out of our traditional service provision is a good thing, but what does this really look like in practice? What are the real costs and benefits to the parties involved? What is the difference between collaboration, cooperation and partnership? And what are the critical success factors? For this conference, we'd like to see the scaffolding behind the culture shift.
Presentations will be allocated a maximum of 20 minutes each with 5 minutes question time.
Posters will be displayed in the Trade exhibition, and authors are expected to be available at the start of lunch to answer any questions.
In your abstract please explain the context of your project. Who was involved? What was the purpose?
What did you do? Did you achieve what you wanted? Any key lessons learned?
Submit your abstract by Friday 17 June 2016. Clearly state if you are submitting a presentation or a poster.
To discuss your interest or to ask any questions please email both program co-ordinators:
Note all conference papers will be published as the proceedings in Health Inform (the Health Libraries Inc. Journal -indexed by Informit and CINAHL). Full papers are expected to be submitted to the program co-ordinators one month before the Conference - 28 September 2016.
Conference registrations will follow shortly.
Look forward to hearing from you, Health Libraries Inc. - Conference Program Co-ordinators
