What's Hot and What's Not: Call for Virtual Poster Proposals

If you’re an innovative arts librarian, actively engaged in the ever-changing world of libraries, listen up!!

With the world of information and information-sharing in constant flux, we are all challenged to keep abreast of trends in library resources and technologies, so we can provide innovative services to our users.

Share what you know and what you are doing  to enhance your library’s offerings. Virtual poster sessions will complement the real-time conference session, “What’s Hot and What’s Not: Incoming and Outgoing Technologies and Services” that takes place at the Conference Center on Sunday, May 4, 11:30 am-12:30 pm.

Virtual poster sessions (url or ppt file)  may describe an innovative library program, analyze a problem and its new and/or creative solution, and/or report research findings. To apply, email your proposal by February 15, 2008, to Joan Stahl, session moderator (jstahl@umd.edu).

Your proposal must include:

  • Your Name and Contact Information
  • Title of Poster Session
  • Abstract (200words or less)

Notification of selected virtual poster sessions will be sent on or before February 21, 2008. Deadlines for virtual poster will be forthcoming.

Bethany Sewell and Jason Aubin are developing a virtual poster site at http://arlisnamw.wordpress.com/virtual-poster-sessions/. This is currently a work in progress.  Meanwhile, the guidelines that have been developed for the physical posters, many of which apply to the virtual posters, will be helpful and can be viewed at
