Call For Poster Sessions
The International Relations Round Table (IRRT) Invites you to present a poster session at the ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA, on Sunday, June 24, 2011.
What is a Poster Session?
This is a forum for librarians from around the world to highlight their libraries and to share their successful ideas with colleagues by presenting a research study, a practical problem-solving effort or an innovative library program. Poster sessions are displayed on bulletin boards (1m 20cm x 2m 40cm). Pictures, graphs, data and text are used to illustrate the presentation. Poster presentations provide other conference participants an opportunity to quickly and easily become acquainted with your topic. An effective poster presentation highlights, with visual display, the main points or components of your topic. Poster Sessions can cover any project or program. Some suggested subject categories for poster sessions are:
Conservation and Preservation, Library Services to Special Groups, Reference and Information Services, Management, Children's Services, Information and Referral Services, Young Adults' Services, Reference, Personnel, Library Use Instruction, Planning and Evaluation, Circulation Services, Organization, Special Collections, Technology, Automation, Archives, Education, Continuing Education, Telecommunications, Library Education, Computers, Rare Books, Literacy
