6th Annual LILi Conference
Friday, August 2, 2019, 10:00am – 2:00pm
Registration & Refreshments, 9:30am – 10:00am
CSU Northridge Oviatt Library

Creating Connections: Extending Our Instructional Reach Through Collaborations and Community Partnerships
Proposal Deadline: Friday, March 22nd
How has your library developed successful instruction-related collaborations with other libraries, departments, organizations or community members? Do you have an idea percolating that you would like to “workshop” with LILi conference participants for feedback…or perhaps gain a new instruction focused partnership? Collaborations start with relationships and interactions between people. By working beyond traditional boundaries libraries can deliver better instruction, outcomes and value for their patrons and communities. This has become especially important for today’s libraries regardless of type, size or location, allowing them to surpass what each could accomplish on their own.
Lifelong learning and information literacy (IL) development occurs in countless contexts and communities, within and outside the library. LILi invites you to share your library or program’s innovative instruction-related collaborations and relationships by submitting proposals with practical application with potential for adoption across library types. Possible topics include, but are not limited to the following, all as related to making connections in order to foster information literacy and empowerment:
- Instructional outreach initiatives
- Instruction-related programming for various populations, including children, teens, seniors, immigrants, English language learners, and other marginalized groups
- Workshops, one-shots, credit courses, and training sessions supporting students/users/patrons in online and face-to-face settings
- Embedded librarianship collaborations
- Teaching through community archiving
- Teaching partnerships between libraries and advocacy organizations
- Academic, school or public library instructional partnerships
- News and media literacy
- Digital citizenship
- Service learning initiatives
- Guiding people through new methods of information discovery
- Teaching with transformative technologies
- Creating lifelong learning opportunities
- Unlearning, re-learning, decolonizing, or other relevant info-pedagogy
- Building networks and engagement to promote information services and instruction
- Local, international, and digital partnerships and best practices
LILi invites you to submit proposals for engaging and interactive presentations with practical applications by March 22, 2019. Notification of acceptance by May 15, 2019.
The conference will include a diversity of sessions including 10-20 minute presentations, brief lightning talks and poster sessions. Please note your preferred presentation formats when prompted on the registration form.

Topic for January 22: Menstrual Surveillance! This week we will be talking about the rise of “femtech” and, specifically, the proliferation of period apps that profit off of menstrual surveillance.
To help prep for the discussion, we’re reading “Period tracking apps are not for women” by Kaitlyn Tiffany (2018) and “Your menstrual app is probably selling data about your body” by Sarah Burke (2018). Though the first article is not as trans-inclusive as we would like, it will be a great springboard for our broader conversation about gender, technology, and intimate surveillance! Join us!
