Share your best ideas and work with the national library community by presenting a poster session at the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago!

The poster session committee encourages submissions from all types of libraries and on any topic relevant to librarianship. Submissions 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 place materials such as pictures, data, graphs, diagrams and narrative text on boards that are usually 4 x 8 feet. During their assigned 1½ hour time periods, participants informally discuss their presentations with conference attendees.

The deadline for submitting an application is Friday, February 3. Applicants will be notified in the first half of March, after a double-blind peer review process, whether their submission has been accepted for presentation at the conference. The 2017 ALA Annual Poster Sessions will be held June 24 and 25, 2017 in the exhibits hall.

To start the application process, go here. (Note that you will need to log in via your ALA user account.) Questions about poster session presentations and submissions may be directed to Blake Doherty, Chair of the ALA Poster Session Committee, at bdoherty@amherst.edu; or, Candace Benefiel, Chair of the ALA Poster Session Review Panel, at c-benefiel@tamu.edu.
