Thanks to everyone who submitted a proposal!

Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal for the LOEX 2020 Conference.


LOEX is returning to Ypsilanti, Michigan in 2020 -- in the backyard of both Rosie the Riveter and the assembly line. Just as Rosie stepped up to the production line, we invite you to come on board and share how you’re pushing the boundaries of information literacy instruction. Meet with like-minded colleagues to discuss how both instructional ingenuity and tried-and-true successes can impact 21st century student learning. There may be bumps in the road or breaks in the line, but we can do it!  

Breakout Sessions

Traditional presentations and interactive workshops. As in previous years, these sessions will make up the large majority of the conference program (an estimated 55-65 sessions). Breakout Session proposals are now being accepted and are due Friday, November 22, 2019. [deadline has passed]

Lightning Talks

Short (seven minutes maximum) presentations given during a single session by different presenters. There will only be a handful (maximum of five) of these presentations as they are intended to be an energizing, but small, part of the conference. Lightning Talk proposal due date is Monday, January 20, 2020.  [deadline has passed]

Poster Sessions

Students currently enrolled in a graduate program in library and information sciences along with librarians in resident or intern programs are invited to propose poster sessions. Poster Session proposal due date is Monday, January 27, 2020. [deadline has passed]
