    Call for Posters: SLA Annual Conference in Cleveland 2019

    The Social Sciences & Humanities, Academic, and Education Divisions of the Special Libraries Association invite proposals for a poster session to be held during SLA's annual conference in Cleveland, June 14-18, 2019.

    We welcome proposals from information professionals and industry partners addressing any topic relevant to the SLA community. How are you and your library being more innovative? More collaborative? More inclusive? Posters may present original research, case studies, or work in progress.

    A prize will be awarded for the best poster, as judged by attendees. The best posters will also advance to the new SLA Finals poster session where they will be presented along with the best posters from other SLA poster sessions and be eligible to win a grand prize.

    Proposals should be submitted by April 17 using this form [ Click or tap to follow the link.">]. Please include a title and abstract of about 250 words. Proposals will be reviewed by the 2019 poster session committee for quality and relevance to the SLA community, and applicants will be notified of acceptance decisions by May 1. The poster session is a forum for presenting your work and ideas, and proposals to promote a company or product will be rejected.

    The poster session will be a relaxed and informal time to share ideas with your colleagues and will be held on Monday, June 17 from 10:45-11:45 am. Poster presenters are expected to stay for the hour to answer questions and to network with attendees. Presenters should also plan to be available for the SLA Finals Posters Session, to be held on Tuesday, June 18 from 11:30 am-1:30 pm.

    The 2019 poster session committee is Kimberly Bloedel, Lateka Grays, and Tara Murray. Please send any questions to Kim Bloedel at
