FW: Call for Posters for ALCTS 50th Anniversary Conference Bob Nardini 02 Mar 2007 04:32 UTC

The ALCTS 50th Anniversary Conference, June 20 and 21, 2007, in
Washington, DC invites proposals for the Conference poster session to be
held on Wednesday, June 20.

The ALCTS Conference, "Interactive Futures: A National Conference on the
Transformation of Library Collections & Technical Services," will engage
attendees in a thought-provoking, open, and participatory exchange on
the transformation of our work and our profession.

In keeping with the conference theme, poster session proposals should
focus on a transformative change or an innovation in any area of library
collections or technical services work for monographs, serials, or
electronic resources, whether in collection development and management,
cataloging, acquisitions, or preservation.  Poster sessions may document
a change that has been implemented, or may suggest an innovation or
describe a trend likely to affect change in the philosophy or practice
of our profession.

This poster session offers a unique opportunity for beginning career
librarians and veteran librarians, for library support staff, and for
students, to address the future in which we all will work in a most
stimulating setting.  We plan for 250 attendees, and featured Conference
speakers are library leaders and provocative thinkers like Susan Nutter,
David Lankes, Stephen Abram, and Richard Lanham.

The deadline for poster session submissions is Monday, April 2.  The
ALCTS conference committee will review all submissions for
appropriateness of theme, for quality of content, and for quality of
presentation.  We will notify applicants of our decision by May 1.
Please see the ALCTS website for more information on the Conference, and
for a submission form for poster session applications.
