PLA is seeking interested parties to submit virtual poster sessions as part of the upcoming PLA Virtual Conference. The topic of your poster session can be of your choosing, but must be related to public librarianship. Virtual posters can be submitted as Web pages, PowerPoint presentations, or other formats which can be “mounted” on the Web. Accepted “posters” will be mounted on the PLA Virtual Conference website prior to the event (the PLA Virtual Conference will be held on March 15 and March 16 during the PLA 2012 Conference in Philadelphia). Presenters are also welcome to participate in online discussions about their posters via the Virtual Conference.
To apply, or if you have questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your idea. Please include the following: Primary Contact Name, Phone Number, Email Address, Job Title and Institution, Names of Additional Contributors, Title of Proposed Virtual Poster Session, Brief Abstract (150-200) words) describing your poster session, Format of Virtual Poster (e.g. .doc, .html, .pdf) and if any special files/software/effects will be incorporated. We have the ability to do voice-over narration, so if you would like to take advantage of that, just include it in your proposal. Proposals are due by Monday, February 20, at 4:00 p.m.(Central Time). Selected proposals will be notified by February 29, 2012.
