The Academic, Health Sciences, & Special Libraries Section of the SDLA will sponsor a poster session at these year's annual
conference. The poster session will be held concurrently with the no-host social event on Thursday evening October 6 from
5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. All members from all types of libraries are encouraged to participate. Poster sessions provide an
interactive venue for displaying and demonstrating ideas, activities, and best practices with the "stage fright" associated with
formal presentations. Since this session is concurrent with the social event, you will have the opportunity for one-on-one
interactions as a presenter and as an audience member. Some of the posters presented at last year's conference included:
South Dakota Libray Snapshot Day, Briggs Library Space Survey Results, and Rapid City Public Library's Knowledge Network.
The best presentations are those that can be done visually and/or through hands on demonstrations. Presenters will have a
conference table and electricity will be available for electronic devices. Posters should be mounted on presentation boards.
To submit your presentation proposal or to obtain additional information, contact section chair Scott Ahola at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (605) 642-6359. The deadline for submissions is August 21st.
