On May 5th, 2017 the California Conference on Library Instruction will return to the University of San Francisco. Registration information is available here and you can view the full conference program here. Early bird tickets are $50, regular tickets will be $62. The conference sold out quickly last year so we advise purchasing tickets at your earliest convenience.

The 2017 conference theme is New Directions in Library Instruction and Scholarly Communications.

College and university libraries are taking an increasing role in guiding scholarly communications activities on their campuses. As scholarly communications have evolved in the direction of open access and sharing of data, information literacy instruction continues to evolve in order to adapt to a rapidly changing research environment. These major shifts offer ripe territory for collaborative innovation at the crossroads. Join us for a day of presentations devoted to compelling work happening at the intersection of information literacy and scholarly communication. Our honored keynote speaker is Cassidy R. Sugimoto who will be presenting a keynote titled Defending and Disrupting the Scholarly Ecosystem. Learn more about her via our Keynote Presentation page.
