We were overwhelmed with the response to the request to review for NLS6 and as a result have a team of reviewers with a wonderful breadth of experience.  We would like to thank them for their commitment.

They have donated their precious time to read/watch and review all of the submissions and get comments back to us in a tight schedule and for that we are grateful!

We have already begun to receive some very constructive comments from these reviewers, and look forward to the next phase in this exciting process, all allowing us to bring you an NLS6 that is Different!

Well we now have received all your proposals and EOI’s. Wow, what a bunch of awesome submissions! Thank you everyone.

There are so many submissions, on a diverse range of topics, from a whole range of sectors, that we will be spoilt for choice.  We are really looking forwarding to getting to the programming!  It will not be difficult to “be different”!

Our reviewers have now each been allocated a number of reviews and their comments have started coming in.  They are almost as excited as we are!

Keep an eye on the blog posts for updates.  We will be contacting all submitters via email once the reviews have all been received.

Now the fun begins!

Passionate about helping the next generation of librarians and information professionals but can’t get yourself to Brisbane in 2013?

Want to be involved in NLS6 but don’t necessarily want to present?

Perhaps you want to present but also want to have greater involvement in the planning of NLS6?

Then becoming a reviewer of NLS6 presentation proposals is perfect for you!

To ensure the NLS6 program is of the highest standard possible, all submitted presentation proposals will go through a peer review process. Reviewers will make sure that each presentation fits into NLS6’s theme of “Be different”.

We are looking for people from all backgrounds and stages of their information career to be reviewers: everyone from students to established professionals. If you have a passion for the industry and an understanding of the goals of NLS, then we want to hear from you!

All we will require of you is time to review presentation proposals and give feedback within a two week turnaround time in late August. We will give you a list of criteria on which to review the proposals so you won’t be going in blind.

Plus, as if you needed more motivation, becoming an NLS reviewer can also earn you ALIA PD points!

So how do I sign up I hear you ask? Simple! Just send us an expression of interest before 5 August 2012. Details of what you need to include in the E.O.I can be found in our official call for reviewers.
