Go Beyond the Elementary: Present a Poster
The word posters conjures up images of elementary school classrooms adorned with cardboard rectangles highlighting everything from rules for good behavior (“Raise your hand to speak”) to the steps of the scientific method (Question, Research, Hypothesize, Experiment, Analyze, and Conclude) to inspirational messages (“If you are determined to learn, nothing can stop you”). But there’s nothing elementary about posters with titles such as “The Potential of Industry Standards in Undergraduate Business Education” and “Perspectives on Trends and the Future of Academic Science Librarianship.”
Those were just two of the more than 20 posters that were presented at the SLA 2019 Annual Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. This year’s conference promises to showcase even more of them, as an “All-SLA Poster Session” is being added to the schedule to complement the poster sessions traditionally sponsored by SLA communities such as the Business & Finance Division, Science-Technology Division, and Social Sciences & Humanities Division.
Proposals for the All-SLA Poster Session are being accepted through March 12. Poster proposals addressing any topic relevant to librarians and information professionals are welcome. Both SLA members and non-members are invited to submit proposals.
If your proposal is accepted, you’ll qualify for the discounted presenter registration rate of $395—a significant savings over the regular rate. And if your poster is judged “Best Overall,” you’ll receive a complimentary one-year SLA membership (a $220 value).
Go beyond the elementary—create a poster and share your knowledge with your peers at the SLA 2020 Annual Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina.
