*Instructional Designers, technologists, and online learning specialists
are in high demand across all levels of education as it shifts online. In
2004, the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community was established to
promote the adoption of instructional design and technology as a vital
skill set for librarians seeking to more deeply integrate their teaching
and learning initiatives into the curriculum and community. Since then,
instructional design and dedicated staff positions to support it, have
become more commonplace in and critical to libraries, particularly at
colleges and universities, but they are by no means ubiquitous.**This
edition of Library 2.019 will bring together the community of librarians,
instructional designers and other educators whose work happens at the
intersection of instructional design, educational technology, learning, and
libraries. This is also a conference for those wanting to learn more about
how instructional designers are advancing the educational mission of their
libraries and institutions, how the latest innovations in educational
technology are being applied in libraries and classrooms, and what we can
expect as instructional design and technology transitions from a peripheral
to core function within libraries. While the future of libraries may be
uncertain and unpredictable, this is an opportunity to explore how library
professionals and their colleagues can shape it through the application of
instructional design and technology.*

Participants are encouraged to use #library2019
 and #libraryid
