Call for Poster Sessions
The deadline for submitting poster session proposals was Friday, January 25, 2008. Proposals are no longer being accepted.
The Illinois LOEX Committee invites graduate students in library and information science programs to submit proposals to host a poster session at the 36th Annual LOEX Conference. The 2008 conference theme, Librarian as Architect: Planning, Building & Renewing, explores the meaningful building of supportive information literacy learning environments and experiences in instruction.
Poster sessions visually convey research in the areas of instruction and information literacy. They take the form of an exhibit and should include brief narratives, data, and graphics that quickly summarize the student’s research. Computer displays, handouts, directions to websites and other materials can also be incorporated into the exhibit. Presenters will be expected to informally discuss their presentations with conference attendees by making brief remarks, sharing information, and answering questions about the topic. Proposals for poster sessions will be limited to graduate students currently enrolled in library and information science programs.
A poster session for the 2008 LOEX Conference should address one (or more) of the following themes (details):
Deadline for proposal submission is Friday, January 25, 2008. Proposals must be submitted through the online submission form.
Poster session proposal submitters will be notified if the proposal has been accepted for presentation by Wednesday, February 6, 2008.
If your proposal is accepted, then you will be automatically registered for the conference, and required to pay the student poster session registration amount ($95) by March 17, 2008. Note: Failure to pay the registration fee will result in the cancellation of your poster session and conference registration. All presenters, including poster session presenters, are responsible for paying their own travel and lodging expenses.
