FCC Approves Net Neutrality
by George H. Pike
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gave a huge victory to Net Neutrality advocates by voting in favor of sweeping new rules that change the way internet services are regulated. The rules would allow the FCC to regulate ISPs in a similar manner to telecommunication companies, including by restricting their ability to prioritize or give favorable treatment to certain categories of content. Opponents of Net Neutrality, however, have vowed to block the FCC action in either the courts or in Congress.

University Libraries Offer an Alternative to Traditional Publishing
by Brandi Scardilli
Maybe you're a professor who has an idea for a journal you'd like to start at your university. Or maybe you're a graduate student looking to prove yourself by publishing your research. Or maybe you're a college librarian hoping to start a newsletter that will raise your library's visibility on campus. No matter the reason, you're writing something that needs to find an audience. Why not publish it at the library? As digital tools get easier to use, many institutions are starting their own publishing programs in an effort to offer more varied services to their communities.

INTERNET LIBRARIAN INTERNATIONAL

THE LIBRARY INNOVATION CONFERENCE

 October 17 & 18, London

ILI's Programme Director, Val Skelton, celebrates librarian superpowers. 
Librarians are leaders in tech, organizational influencers, expert marketers (often working with a zero budget), change managers, skilled data crunchers and expert internet searchers--and so much more. ILI's conference programme celebrates the incredible range of roles, skills, and initiatives librarians are carrying out every day. Over two days this October, six conference tracks highlight the importance of the internet librarian's role.

THE NEW LIBRARY, THE NEW LIBRARIAN – exploring some of the strategies, structures, teams, skills, services and collaborations librarians are using to ensure they stay at the cutting edge.

USERS, UX, AND USAGE – understanding how libraries are working with users to redesign services, spaces, and to understand usage.

CONTENT CREATIVITY – investigating how libraries are creating, curating, and marketing digital collections, how librarians are publishers in their own right, and how they are driving collaborative content creation.

FIGHT THE FAKE, FIND THE FACTS – celebrating two of the librarian's super powers--advanced search techniques and nurturing information integrity--in a post-truth/multi-truth era.

MARKETING THE LIBRARY – sharing stories of librarians who are influencing use and expanding audiences for their services and collections from the DJ librarian to the digital storyteller.

NEW SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS – exploring why the scholarly communications landscape is changing, and what this means for libraries and information professionals.

In addition to a series of one-hour workshops - ILI Extra - covering a wide range of specialised skills and topics, from tech topics to personal development, ILI also hosts two one-day pre-conference workshops:

Websearch Academy 2017 explores the intricacies of research on the web. Our global expert speakers look at advanced search, evaluation of search engines, apps relevant to serious research, social media search, and analysis of search results.

Marketing Your Library Service: Principles and Actions--In libraries we spend so much time curating our content and services that sometimes we don’t put enough focus on telling people about what we do. We do so much, but how do we ensure people hear about what we offer and understand what we do?
