3rd Annual Library Software Users Group Conference

The Library Software Users Group (LiSUG) Steering Committee invites
proposals for conference sessions at the 3rd Annual LiSUG Conference,
Monday, October 12th, 2009, at Dutchess Community College in
Poughkeepsie. Sessions may be on any appropriate topic, and we’re sure
that you can find some way to tie in this year’s conference theme:
Beyond the 400th: Exploring New Domains.

The LiSUG conference provides a fantastic venue to share and learn
from our collective experiences with the software systems and packages
used by SUNY libraries. Dutchess Community College, located in the
Hudson Valley, is easily accessible via NYS Thruway, the Taconic State
Parkway and Metro-North Railroad. We encourage you to share your
ideas, discoveries, and best practices at LiSUG at this fall!

Possible topic areas could include (but are not limited to):

* Outsourcing
* Purchase on Demand
* Access and other database tools for ALEPH/ILLiad reports and
collection analysis
* Project Management
* Project Assessment
* Information Commons
* Electronic Resources Management Systems (ERMSs)
* Distance learning technologies
* Web 2.0 applications (for instruction, outreach, etc.)
* Aleph (reports, management tips, etc.)
* ILLiad (workflows, resource sharing adaptations, etc.)
* Link resolvers (CUFTS, 360Link, etc.)
* Open Source library software
* Website development (usability testing, content management, etc.)

Deadline: proposals are due by Aug. 31, 2009

Submitting: The proposal form is available at:

All sessions will be 45-minutes in length and scheduled in concurrent
blocks throughout the day. If submitting more than one session
proposal, we ask that you use a separate form for each session. One
registration fee may be waived per session.
