Call for Submissions to the Merge & Converge Tech Forum: Partnering with Technology Champions

Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries Forum (IACRL)

July 24, 2016

(via Jacqueline Leskovec, National Network of Libraries of Medicine – Greater Midwest Region)

The Merge & Converge Tech Forum Planning Group is looking for panelists who want to share their IT collaboration success stories as either a “technology therapy” for those of us struggling with new technology initiatives in our institutions or an inspiration to those of us looking for new and exciting ventures. Have you participated in your college’s Learning Management System (LMS), integrated library resources in your hospital’s Electronic Health Record (EHR), collaborated on 3D printing/imaging, Big Data projects, instructional technologies, or other exciting tech projects?

If so, we want to hear from you and (if possible) your non-library technology collaborators! (Note: Some funding may be available to defray the cost of attendance for non-library personnel.)

The Tech Forum will be taking place on Monday, October 24, from 3:30 to 5:00 PM CST. The conference website, including the full schedule, can be found here. If you are interested in serving on this panel, please fill out this form by Monday, August 1. Submissions should be around 250 words or less. Panelists will be notified of acceptance by Thursday, September 1. Any questions should be directed to Amy Blevins, at
