2016 ELD Call for Papers

The Engineering Libraries Division (ELD) seeks papers for the 2016 Annual Conference and Exposition to be held in New Orleans, LA, June 26 to June 29. Librarians and educators from around the world are encouraged to submit papers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Planning STEM libraries
  • Maker spaces (more to be said)

If you are involved in innovative services or research outside these areas, please submit an abstract.

Abstracts and draft papers are reviewed using a double-blind process, and thus are to be submitted with no information identifying author(s) or institutional affiliation(s). Abstracts and papers will be judged of the basis of relevance to the division, quality of research and writing, and potential to engage conference participants.

All submissions are expected to meet deadlines and adhere to specified requirements.
