Statement of Role, Purpose, and Function

Call for Poster Session Proposals for 2021 Annual Virtual Conference

The ALA International Relations Round Table (IRRT) International Poster Sessions Committee invites you to submit  a Digital Poster session proposal on international themes for the 2021 ALA Annual Virtual Conference!

The 2021 ALA IRRT International Poster Session Committee invites everyone to share your best ideas and work with the international library community by presenting a poster at the 2020 ALA Annual Conference Virtual Poster Session.

Submissions are invited from international librarians at all types of libraries on any topic relevant to librarianship. Submissions are also invited from librarians in the US on any topic relevant to international populations, projects, and collaborations. Posters may include a description of an innovative library program, an analysis of a solution to a problem, a report of a research study, or any other presentation that would benefit the larger library community.

Poster session participants create digital posters with pictures, data, graphs, diagrams, narrative text, and audio descriptions.

The deadline for submitting an application has been extended until March 21, 2021. Following a double-blind peer review process, applicants will be notified by late April if their submission has been accepted for presentation at the conference. Start your application and view more information about the submission process now.
