Submit a poster session proposal for ACRL 2011 - deadline approaching

Submit a poster session proposal for ACRL 2011 to be held in historic Philadelphia, March 30 - April 2, 2011. We encourage you to participate in this exciting and energizing exchange of ideas—bring your latest research, cutting-edge practices, and innovative developments to share with your colleagues. We invite you to submit your innovative or radical proposals to help us make ACRL 2011 a truly revolutionary conference!
Poster sessions use graphic displays to informally present innovative library-based projects, successful solutions to problems, or present the findings of a unique research project while summarizing lessons for the academic and research library community. Presenters will share their main ideas with colleagues via a brief discussion of their topic as attendees navigate the poster session area. Posters should be an eye-catching visual representation of the topic, including graphics, tables, charts, text, and images. Each interactive poster session will be scheduled for one hour in one of five time blocks. The Poster Session Committee expects poster sessions that engage attendees during repeated presentations. The poster sessions will be located near the exhibits area. Presenters are encouraged to create online handouts in order to communicate more detailed information. Since space is limited at a poster session, a maximum of two presenters per presentation at any one time is recommended. Best practices for a successful poster sessions will be available prior to the conference.
