ALA information about poster sessions in general is available at:

Basically, poster sessions are an opportunity to informally present graphics and text about work you have done or are doing.

Usually posters are 4' x 8' or smaller - and in this case, must be self-standing (this location will not be providing boards for display). If you supplement your poster with computer graphics or other technology, you will need to bring your own projection equipment, laptops, etc.

Members of the Joint ACRL CJCLS-CLS-DLS Program Committee will be evaluating submissions on an ongoing basis through March 30, 2008.

The program and poster session are co-sponsored by the College Libraries Section, Community & Junior College Libraries Section, and the Distance Learning Section of ACRL.
