CFP: EBSS Research Forum (ALA Annual 2008)

CFP: EBSS Research Forum (ALA Annual 2008)

The Education and Behavioral Sciences Section Research Committee is holding its second annual Research Poster Session and Discussion Forum during the second ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA, Saturday, June 28, 2008. The forum seeks to provide beginning and established researchers an opportunity to present research in progress, and receive collaborative feedback on their work and recommendations for future publishing. Research/posters will be simultaneously presented and discussed in small informal groups.

Attendees at the forum will find an arena for discussion and networking with their colleagues interested in research-related issues and trends in the profession.

The committee will use a blind review process.
