The Atlanta Area Bibliographic Instruction Group (AABIG or BIG) began in the early 1980s as an informal way for instruction librarians from academic, K-12, public, and special libraries in the greater Atlanta area to share ideas and discuss common issues about bibliographic instruction. We hold an annual conference to discuss best practices in teaching information literacy.
Leaving the Lecture Behind: Active Learning in and Out of the Classroom

Librarians, like other educators, have been inundated with second hand theory, research, and buzzwords suggesting alternatives to the “straight lecture” in the design of our teaching and learning experiences. Whether we are presenting to students, to colleagues, or to administrators, theory is of little use unless it is applied in creative, meaningful, and appropriate ways. We invite you join us as we share and showcase practical uses of lecture and presentation alternatives. All librarians, library staff, and library students are welcome to attend this free event!

AABIG convenes for a one day conference each year for instructional librarians. This conference of blind jury-selected panels, lectures, and interactive sessions gives librarians from all types of libraries (public, academic, special and school media) a valuable learning and professional development opportunity.
AABIG is most appreciative of any and all financial gifts. We are proud to offer free registration to all librarians, so that those who need it most, but can afford it least, have the same opportunities to learn, present, and network. Please help us keep the AABIG conference affordable for everyone. For more information about donating, please visit the Funding for Conferences page.
