Call for Papers: 2018 ALI Scholarly Communication Librarianship Conference

The Scholarly Communication Committee of the Academic Libraries of Indiana is pleased to
announce a call for papers and panel presentations for the 2018 ALI Scholarly Communication
Librarianship Conference. The conference will be held on Friday, October 26, 2018 at the
University Library at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana. To date, this is the only annual conference
devoted entirely to Scholarly Communication Librarianship. We invite submissions from all
areas of academia and the public sector for this growing conference. Please see the schedule and
presentations from last year and from the previous iteration of the conference.

Any topics relating to scholarly communication in academic librarianship will be considered.
We welcome proposals and presentations on both theory and practice, as well as individual and
panel presentations. We are also soliciting submissions for a poster session and a quick hits
session (see below). This is not an ALI-specific or Indiana-specific conference and all are
encouraged to submit – including international presenters. We look forward to hearing from

 Individual presentations on research, theory or practice related to scholarly
communication librarianship.
 Panels on topics related to scholarly communication librarianship.
 Submissions for conference poster session
 Submissions for 5-10 minute quick hits presentations

Please send submissions consisting of a title and a brief description of around 200 words, along
the names and affiliations of all presenters to Stephen Craig Finlay at

We will also be offering two scholarships to attend the conference – one for a current MLS
student and one for an early-career librarian. Keep an eye out for that announcement.
