NMRT Poster Session at NLA/NEMA Conference
Are you a library science student or a librarian new to the profession? Do you have a research paper, a class project, or an innovative library program that you’d like to share with your colleagues? Then submit a proposal to participate in the New Members Round Table Library Science Student/New Professional Poster Session at the 2011 NLA/NEMA Conference in Lincoln on October 5-7.
Proposals will be accepted from current library school students and librarians with less than 10 years of experience. The NMRT officers will select up to 15 participants for the poster session. Participants will be expected to create a poster briefly showcasing their chosen topic and to attend a one-hour poster session during the conference, where they will have the chance to present a summary of their posters and informally answer questions from session attendees.
Library science students: Submit a proposal, and not only will you have a chance to share your work and network with colleagues, but NMRT could pay for your conference registration. The NMRT officers are especially interested in encouraging library science students to participate in the poster session. As an added incentive for students, the names of all student participants will be entered in a drawing to win a free conference registration. Two names will be selected, and NMRT will pay the conference registration fees of these two participants. (If you are not already a member of NLA, your prize will also include a one-year student membership to both NLA and NMRT.)
The deadline for submissions is July 29, 2011. Accepted participants will be notified by August 5.
To submit a proposal, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, include your name, the name of your school and/or employer, the title of your proposed poster, and a brief summary of your topic (1-2 paragraphs). Any questions about the poster session can be directed to email@example.com as well.
