Poster Proposals for ARLIS/NA 2015: Deadline Approaching

Deadline for submissions is Friday, October 17, 2014

The Fort Worth Conference Program Committee encourages fellow librarians, visual and media resource specialists, archivists, curators, museum professionals, educators, artists, designers, architects, historians, researchers, practitioners, students, and others across the horizon to submit pioneering ideas in a poster format. The many worthy proposers of papers and sessions which could not be accommodated in the conference program are encouraged to consider adapting their proposals to a poster format.
