One of the great benefits of annual conference attendance is the sharing of user experiences among the membership, generating ideas and learning innovative practices. User presentations contribute significantly to this, and create a program that is more than just about Ex Libris products – it’s about how they are used!

IGeLU invites you to submit proposals for presentations and poster sessions at its 6th annual conference in Haifa, Israel. The conference will take place from 11-13 September. Information and links are elsewhere on our website, and the conference website is coming soon.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Now extended to 31 May 2011


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 Aleph, ARC, Voyager, SFX, bX, MetaLib, Verde, DigiTool, Rosetta and Primo and the Primo Central index.

Proposals may also cover topics that relate to the wider development of library and information systems within the context of Ex Libris products. For example:
