One of the great benefits of IGeLU membership and annual conference attendance is the sharing of user experiences among the membership, generating ideas and learning innovative practices.  User presentations are a significant contribution and help create a programme that is more than just about Ex Libris products – it’s about how they are used and who uses them!

IGeLU is pleased to invite proposals for presentations and posters at its 7th annual conference at ETH-Zurich in Switzerland on 11-13 September 2012.  Information and links are here on the IGeLU website,  and on the dedicated conference website.


DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION:        Now extended to 15 May 2012

TARGET FOR ACCEPTANCE:        1 June 2012


Topics:  Proposals may cover any of the Ex Libris products, the interactions between them, and their interoperation with other systems.  We are interested in users’ experiences of Alma; Aleph and ARC; Voyager; Discovery Solutions (Primo, Primo Central Index, MetaLib, MetaLib+); SFX and bX; Verde and UStats; DigiTool and Rosetta.  Proposals may also cover topics that relate to the wider development of library and information systems within the context of Ex Libris products, e.g.:

  • Innovative use of products
  • Integration of products with each other or with external systems
  • Innovation in interfaces: accessible, mobile, something completely different?
  • Experiences with new products or the latest release of current ones
  • Ex Libris hosted/cloud solution – how is it working for you; how has it changed how you work?
  • Authentication and authorization, e.g., PDS, Single Sign On, Shibboleth
  • Optimising systems and maximising resources
  • Consortia issues

And not least
