Call for Posters: CUBL Poster Session SLA Chicago (Agility in Business Librarianship)

Call for Posters: CUBL Poster Session SLA Chicago (Agility in Business Librarianship)
Theme:           Agility in Business Librarianship
Location:         2012 SLA Annual Conference – Chicago, IL
Date/Time:      Monday July 16th – 4:00pm – 5:30pm

In this call for posters, the Business and Finance Division of SLA is providing an opportunity for business librarians to share ideas and develop research collaborations.  Over the last few years both public and private organizations have had to make difficult choices among people, services and resources. We are looking for case studies or practical applications on how business librarians are integrating “agility” into their work including:

         Services or standards that promote agility
         Agile approaches to business information education
         Assessment of agile initiatives
         Librarian / faculty / college collaboration
         Utilizing new technologies for increased staff agility
         Business information education in multi-disciplinary contexts
         Outsourcing / insourcing / co-sourcing / offshoring / multisourcing services/resources
         Using agility to promote business research services

Help your colleagues learn from your work, both successful and unsuccessful.  
Share the results of your efforts at the upcoming poster session at SLA in Chicago, July 2012.

This session is sponsored by the Business & Finance Division and the College & University Business Libraries Section. 

Guidelines for materials and layout of poster presentations are available on the SLA Business & Finance Division website at
