Dear colleagues, 
We are extending the deadline to submit papers and posters to Friday, January 14, 2011, since many people are taking time off during the holidays.
So, if your new year's resolution is to work on a paper or poster, you still have time.
Please excuse duplicate postings. 
Happy new year!
Hella Bluhm-Stieber

The 2011 Joint Chapter Meeting NCNMLG & MLGSCA, Planning Committee is soliciting submissions for contributed papers and posters for the upcoming
meeting “Sustain… Your Self, Your Profession, Your Planet” in San Francisco, February 23-26, 2011.


We want to hear from you!


What innovations, new services, programs and technologies are you using and/or promoting in your library? How are you coping with the stress of budget cuts, decreased staffing, additional service demands, or information overload? What keeps you sane, gives you a lift, and inspires you to set and achieve new goals? Is technology helping you connect in new ways with your patrons? How are you working smarter? Is your library going green?  Are you developing any collaborations for research or funding library programs or collections?


Paper and posters may describe any research or practice of interest to the medical library community.


Here is your chance to share your findings with colleagues, hone your presentation skills, and gain institutional and peer recognition for your work.


We want to hear your innovative ideas! Whether you are a seasoned presenter or a novice, we strongly encourage you to consider this opportunity.


Presenters should be prepared to speak between 12-15 minutes.

Note: contributed papers are oral presentations; a complete text of the paper is not required.



Submit a copy of an abstract (approximately 250-300 words) describing the poster.

Please list all presenters and institutional affiliations.

Please let us know if you need a table or electricity. Wifi is free for attendants who stay in the hotel.


Please place "POSTER PROPOSAL" in the subject line of your message and email to Hella Bluhm-Stieber, Poster Session Chair, and to Carmen Huddelston:
