Submit Your Proposals for the Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference


It's back-to-school time for many of you, signifying the countdown to the
highly anticipated Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference
<http://library2012.com/> . The global forum about the future of libraries
in the digital age is just around the corner, October 3-5, 2012. And that
means the deadline for submitting your presentation proposals is even
closer. Don't panic yet, though. You still have a little time to put
together your proposal.


Take the next week to write an abstract of your talk and submit it online.
Your entire presentation does not have to be completed. We just need an
outline of what you plan to address. The deadline to submit your proposal is
September 15, 2012. Everyone is welcome to submit a presentation proposal
and attend this free event. View the proposal submissions
-presentations/listForCategory>  we've received and accepted to date. 


If the deadline of September 15 is absolutely out of the question, you might
be in luck. We understand that this time of year is one of the busiest, and
you may be feeling overwhelmed. If that describes you, there's a
post-deadline submission process, giving you an additional week to submit
your presentation proposal. Post-deadline submissions must be received by
September 22, 2012, and will be considered only after the full review of
those submitted on time. Acceptances will be contingent on available
conference time slots and given in order of submission date.


The Library 2.012 Worldwide Virtual Conference presentations will cover six
subject strands:


*	STRAND 1: Libraries - Physical and Virtual Learning Spaces
*	STRAND 2: Librarians & Information Professionals - Evolving
Professional Roles in Today's World
*	STRAND 3: Content & Creation - Organizing and Creating Information
*	STRAND 4: Changing Delivery Methods
*	STRAND 5: User Centered Access
