vary in length, between 20 and 60 minutes including Q&A. All sessions will
be held in the web conferencing platform Blackboard Collaborate, and
volunteers will be available to moderate and provide session support. Live
and recorded training will also be provided prior to the conference to get
you comfortable with presenting online.

instructions. The Library 2.011 conference is open to all, so please
encourage your friends and colleagues to submit their presentation
