Library 2.013 Conference Presents Open Forum for Knowledge Sharing


We're received many nominations for keynote presenters, and now it is your
turn to join the Library 2.013 Worldwide Virtual Conference
<http://www.library20.com/2013>  lineup. This is the official call for
presentation proposals.   


This fully online, participatory conference presents a unique opportunity to
showcase the excellent research and work that you do every day. How does
your library manage digital collections? Is your library mobile friendly? Do
you have a story to tell about maker spaces? Your participation as a
presenter will steer the global conversation about the future of libraries. 


Everyone is welcome to submit a presentation proposal and participate in
this free event. There are no registration fees and no travel requirements.
The entire conference will be held online via web conferencing, with
presentations held in multiple languages and scheduled around the clock over
the course of two days, starting October 18, 2013.


The Library 2.013 Worldwide Virtual Conference presentations will cover
eight subject strands <http://www.library20.com/page/2-013-strands> ,
addressing a wide variety of timely topics such as, MOOCs, e-books, maker
spaces, mobile services, embedded librarians, green libraries, and more!
Doctoral students will also have their own strand for presenting their
research. Plus, there will be a new strand dedicated to virtual library
