The third annual scholarly communication librarianship conference in the United States

Call for Proposals: 2019 ALI Scholarly Communication Librarianship Conference

The Scholarly Communication Committee of the Academic Libraries of Indiana is pleased to announce a call for papers and panel presentations for the 2019 conference.  The conference will be held on Friday, October 25, 2019 at the University Library at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana.  To date, this is the only annual conference devoted entirely to Scholarly Communication Librarianship.  We invite submissions from all areas of academia and the public sector for this growing conference.

Any topics relating to scholarly communication in academic librarianship will be considered.  We welcome proposals and presentations on both theory and practice, as well as individual and panel presentations.  We are also soliciting submissions for a poster session and a quick hits session (see below). This is not an ALI-specific or Indiana-specific conference and all are encouraged to submit – including international presenters.  We look forward to hearing from you!

  • Individual presentations on research, theory or practice related to scholarly communication librarianship. 
  • Panels on topics related to scholarly communication librarianship.
  • Submissions for conference poster session
  • Submissions for 5-10 minute quick hits presentations

Please send submissions consisting of a title and a brief description of around 200 words, along the names and affiliations of all presenters to Stephen Craig Finlay at
