Call for Posters: Michigan Library Association

Call for Posters: Michigan Library Association
Location: Kalamazoo, Michigan
October 22-24,2008

Do you have something interesting to show your colleagues? Or perhaps you solved a unique or sticky problem? If so, then a poster session is for you. All types of libraries and all librarians, staff members and Library Science students are invited to participate at the 2008 Michigan Library Association Annual Conference in Kalamazoo. Sessions for poster presentations will be located near the exhibit hall, which should generate great traffic to your presentation.

Guidelines for the poster session:

* Poster sessions can introduce unique collections or services, discuss a problem and the research, action, or methodology used to solve that problem, or outline findings of research or study.
* Displays should be visually appealing (charts, photographs, diagrams, graphics, illustrations, etc.) and should clearly state the purpose of the display. Displays should also be large enough to be seen from several feet distant.
* Presenters should also bring handouts or other supplementary materials (no duplication services will be provided) and a sign up sheet to record names and addresses of attendees who would like further information. An ample supply of business cards are also encouraged.
* A tack board panel measuring 4 x 6 feet mounted on a freestanding easel or tabletop will be provided.
* There will also be table space for participants to place handouts or other supplementary material.
* One author must be present at all times to answer questions from conference attendees.
* Displays must be set up 15 minutes prior to the assigned time and taken down within 15 minutes after the session. Once assigned, your time will not change

Send a 250-word abstract of your session with your name, institution contact information and any other colleagues by July 15 to: David Scott (

If chosen, you will be notified by August 15, 2008.
