CFP: PLA Virtual Poster Session

CFP: PLA Virtual Poster Session

Be a Part of PLA’s Virtual Conference with Virtual Poster Sessions

Share Your Library’s Successes and Challenges

PLA is seeking interested parties to submit virtual poster sessions as part of the upcoming PLA Virtual Conference. The topic of your poster session can be of your choosing, but must be related to public librarianship. Virtual posters can be submitted as Web pages, PowerPoint presentations, or other formats which can be “mounted” on the Web. Accepted posters will be mounted on the PLA Virtual Conference Web site prior to the event (the PLA Virtual Conference will be held on March 27 and 28 during the PLA 2008 National Conference). Presenters are also welcome to participate in online discussions about their posters via the Virtual Conference.

To apply, please send an email to Kathleen Hughes detailing your idea. Please include the following: Primary Contact Name, Phone Number, Email Address, Job Title and Institution, Names of Additional Contributors, Title of Proposed Virtual Poster Session, Brief Abstract (150-200) words describing your poster session, Format of Virtual Poster (e.g. .doc, .html, .pdf) and if any special files/software/effects will be incorporated. We have the ability to do voice-over narration, so if you would like to take advantage of that, just include it in your proposal. Proposals are due by February 21, 2008 at 4:00 p.m. Selected proposals will be notified by February 29, 2008.
