2018 Call for Programs
Share |

The Indiana Library Federation's 2018 Call for Programs is a combined form for our seven major professional development events throughout the year, including: regional conferences, Youth Services conference, and Annual Conference. An individual or group may submit sessions for one, a few, or all of these conferences through this form. ILF would like to invite our members, unit leaders, and external experts to submit topics specific to their interests. 

Please note:

  • Call for Programs: Proposed sessions must be submitted via the Call for Programs online formYou can reference the PDF version prior to submission to accurately prepare your responses. The committee and staff use a rubric to evaluate each session proposal which you can also access.*
  • Instructional Document: Before completing the form, please review the Call for Programs instructional document as we have made updates to our process for 2018. It also includes details on each of the professional development events included in the Call for Programs. 
  • Speaker Recommendations Survey: The Speaker Recommendations Survey is a resource to browse the topics and categories in which ILF is seeking outstanding presenters. While you review, you are welcome to add the names of experts you may know.
  • Deadline: The upcoming deadline for submission is March 16, 2018 in preparation for the Youth Services Conference. The earlier the better. The deadline may be extended for sessions related to the Annual Conference.
  • Notification: ILF will contact individuals within an appropriate amount of time in regards to the session's status. The staff and Professional Development Committee may contact the speaker(s) to have a follow up conversation about the proposed session. 

Please direct any questions concerning the form to Megan Zanto at 317-257-2040 ext. 106.


*The Indiana Academic Library Association has requested we increase the rigor of our rubric to consider those in the academic field aspiring for tenure. Updates may be made to the current rubric that will only apply to individuals in this category.
