Tags (optional)

Indicate if either of the following tags is applicable to your proposal.

Emerging Tech & Trends: So much of what we do in libraries today is driven by technology, and many of the problems we face can be addressed by employing, customizing, or developing technologies and considering trends on the horizon. Emerging Tech & Trends sessions span all of the tracks.

D4D Fundamentals/101: These sessions span all of the tracks, introducing an attendee to a foundational area of UX in libraries or an emerging but important topic starting at an introductory level. These sessions would not require background knowledge of the topic and would be appropriate for a practitioner new to UX in libraries or as an introduction to a new topic.

Statement of Originality & Diversity

We are seeking original content. A new angle on an existing topic, an innovative approach. If you are trying something that you do not believe has ever been done or examined, please let the committee know in this section. Reviewers often find connections among submissions that you may not even know existed and we work with presenters to connect talks based on the peer-review process.

We are seeking diverse voices. Does your panel include a deliberate attempt to gather opinions from people of color? under-represented groups? a variety in geography? varying library staff sizes? an international perspective? If this has been a part of your panel creation thought process, please include a note letting us know you worked to gather diverse opinions.

If you feel this is not applicable, indicate below. Please know that this is a private communication point for submitters to the final review by the program chairs and conference coordinator ONLY. This will not appear in the community voting process.
