On behalf of LILRC Annual Conference Committee, I’m inviting your current library school students to participate in this year’s LILRC Annual Conference in Libraries and the Future by presenting at the LIS Students Poster Session. The Conference is being held at the Heritage Club, Bethpage State Park, on October 11 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. The LIS Students Poster Session will be held at around 3:00 pm and the participating students are invited to attend the full Conference.
The theme of the Conference is Libraries in a Post Privacy World but the students posters can be on any topic relevant to librarianship. It may include a report of a research study, an analysis of a solution to a problem, a description of an innovative library program or any other presentation that would engage library users and improve library services. Poster session participants populate boards with pictures, data, graphs, diagrams, narrative text, and more, and informally discuss their presentations with conference attendees during assigned 1 hour to 1.5 hours time periods. The students are welcome to represent the topics they had presented at a recent national or regional conference.
The deadline for submitting an application is Friday, September 13, 2019. Applicants will be notified by Friday, September 20, 2019 if their submission has been accepted for presentation at the conference.
Please ask the participating student to email an abstract of the poster to email@example.com and including the following:
- Poster Title
- Author’s name and name of Library School
- 2-3 learner outcome/session objectives (i.e., what will the attendee learn after viewing your abstract. Use words that begin with “describe”, “identify”, “define”, “list”, etc.)
- Abstract (250-word limit) which should include:
- Introduction/Statement of Problem
- Materials and Methods Used
