SLA 2014 Call for Posters

“Welcoming Opportunity: Embracing new roles and responsibilities in a shifting landscape”

The Academic; Education; Museums, Arts, & Humanities; and Social Science Divisions of the Special Libraries Association invite proposals for a poster session to be held during SLA’s annual conference in Vancouver, June 2014. The theme for this year’s poster session is “Welcoming Opportunity: Embracing new roles and responsibilities in a shifting landscape.” This year’s posters will be displayed in the Info/Expo area and will provide increased exposure for participants as posters will be available to view for an entire day.

Proposals might examine how reconsiderations and re-imaginations of traditional roles are providing both challenges and opportunities. Proposals could also focus on building connections with others across not only geographic and cultural boundaries, but between units in our own organizations as well. Case studies, research, and innovative ideas for the future are all welcome.

We welcome proposals from any SLA member, new or experienced, and especially from students. A prize will be awarded for the best poster, as judged by attendees.

Proposals should be submitted by April 15, 2014 via e-mail to maya.kucij@mcgill.ca. Please include a title and description of about 250 words, and your name, institution, e-mail address, and mailing address. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee for relevance to the theme and quality, and applicants will be notified of the decision by May 1, 2014.

The poster session presentation time will be a relaxed and informal time to share ideas with your colleagues and will be held on Sunday, June 8th from 3:30-5:00p.m.

The 2014 poster session committee is Maya Kucij (Education Division), Julie Jones (Academic Division), Gina Gajewski (Social Science Division), and Rebecca Vargha (Museum, Arts, & Humanities Division).
