Professional Development - Be a Presenter

  • 1.  Professional Development - Be a Presenter

    Posted 07-22-2020 10:04
    Colleagues,   This announcement from GPO offers an alternative to just being the recipient of some great Virtual programming that is now a presenter!  Many of you were never able to travel to the annual Federal Depository Library Conference (FDLC).  Now is you chance to participate and grow your resume.  Note that this is a volunteer opportunity... build up good will by sharing your expertise.

    NB:  FDLC follows the SLA 2020 Annual Conference, oh my!  Maybe you could figure a way to do both!

    Are you looking for professional development opportunities? Would you like to share your knowledge with the FDLP community? Share your expertise during the Federal Depository Library Conference. GPO is seeking your content for the 2020 all-virtual event, October 20 – 23.

    There are many ways to participate.

    • Present an educational program. Presentations can cover introductory to advanced information on topics related to U.S. Government information resources and librarianship. Educational programs run for 60 minutes.
    • Present a poster in our virtual poster gallery. Showcase your FDLP activities, services, or resources by displaying a virtual poster in our poster gallery. Presenters will create a PDF or image file (.png preferred) and submit a short paragraph description of the poster for attendees to browse.
    • Exhibit a product or resources in our virtual exhibitor gallery. Demonstrate, display, and promote products, resources, tools, and services to conference attendees in our vendor gallery. Exhibitors will submit PDF or image files (.png preferred), a paragraph description of the products or services for attendees to browse, and contact information for the organization.

    The deadline for proposals is September 8, 2020, but don't delay. Session spots are limited.
