  • Institutions interested in hosting must have the support of their University or Chief Librarian or Director of Libraries.
  • Applicants should demonstrate enough local interest to staff a conference committee.
  • Institutions should have suitable conference facilities.
  • Institutions must be able to offer all delegates accommodations, either on campus or in the vicinity of the conference facilities.
  • In the case of multiple applicants for the same year, preference may be given to institutions who have never hosted WILU or who have hosted it less recently than others.

Refer to the WILU History page for an overview of WILU values and past conference themes.

Successful applicants will be notified by December 15, 2011.
