2017 Call For Papers


Call for Papers IFLA WLIC 2017, Wroclaw

IFLA LGBTQ Users Special Interest Group


For IFLA WLIC 2017 (19-25 August 2017) we’ve chosen intersectionality as the theme of our conference program. LGBTQ Users Special Interest Group seeks submissions from scholars and practitioners that address the ways in which libraries can provide access to information relating to LGBTQ+ lives as they intersect with the lived experience of other identities.
Presenters are expected to prepare a formal paper as well as a PowerPoint (or other audio/visual) presentation. Papers and presentations may be in any of the official IFLA languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Spanish and Russian) but an accompanying translation into English should be provided.
