Poster Sessions

Do you have an idea, discovery, or experience, that you want to share with fellow librarians in a face-to-face presentation?  Poster sessions during the ACL conference provide you with a great opportunity to share what you know with others!  We want to hear your ideas about social media, information literacy, management/leadership, student workers, professional development, reference consultations, assessment, budgeting/cost savings, marketing and outreach, technology trends, and so much more! These are easy, non-overwhelming ways to exhibit innovations, cool tools, or projects to your colleagues.

The poster sessions for the 2019 Annual Conference will take place during the Vendor Fair on Wednesday, June 12: Poster Session 1 from 10-11:45 AM and Poster Session 2 from 2:15-4 PM. Different posters will be on display during each session. 

The poster sessions should include high-quality posters and professional presentation of the material. Each poster should be well organized, engaging, creative, and content should be applicable to other libraries! Attendees will vote for their favorite poster for each session and the winners will receive a $30 gift card!
