Short Session Description (one line):
This session will discuss the creation of a library web site that is designed to support the Information Literacy needs of various communities housed within an online college.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
This session provides an overview of the creation of the Ivy Bridge College library web site, from the planning process to its implementation (in less than 6 months). The library web site was created to support three key areas of the college- the students, the faculty, and the instructional designers. Construction consisted of three separate portals, each with a specific group of users in mind. At its conclusion, the site was wedded to the Learning Management System in order to meet users "where they live" in the online environment. This presentation will discuss the development process and the collaborative efforts amongst the IBC librarian, faculty members, and staff.

This looks really interesting. I think you might benefit by changing the title--maybe to "Creating A Library Website to Support Information Literacy Needs." ?
If you do change it, let me know so that I can put the session back into the accepted group, since your editing will by default make it "pending" again.
