Contributed Papers: A Showcase of Results
Are you interested in research and scholarship? Are you wondering what other SLA members have done in these areas, and how you might do it, too? Come to the Contributed Papers sessions at SLA 2013!
Each year, a set of Contributed Papers are chosen through a competitive selection process to be presented by SLA members at the annual conference. A few of the papers are presented each day of the conference, offering multiple opportunities to hear directly from your peers about experiences they’ve had, research they’ve conducted, and best practices they’ve developed.
Here are this year’s times, topics and presenters:
