ALAO 2014: Posters, Discussion & Tech Tables

The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Conference Planning Committee is now accepting proposals for Poster Sessions, Tech Tables and Discussion Table topics for the 40th Annual ALAO Conference, which will take place on November 13-14, 2014 at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Sandusky, OH.

Submission deadline for proposals is August 1, 2014.

Applicants are encouraged to develop sessions that show thoughtful consideration of this year’s conference theme, “Engagement, advocacy and outreach: Empowering our communities,” which seeks to explore how academic libraries and librarians empower our communities in all the ways that we do. We would love to learn about your ideas, experiences, solutions, and best practices – even those that yielded results that were different than expected!

For this round of proposals, presentations may take the form of
  • Posters: Graphically represent a topic with text, tables, and images and chat informally with poster session attendees about your material
  • Discussion Tables: Lead a small, informal group discussion to facilitate networking and information exchange about a specific issue that librarians face
  • Tech Tables: Demonstrate a technology resource being used in your library for cataloging, marketing, instruction, or staff training.

Submit your poster, discussion table, or tech table proposal online @ http://bit.ly/1oi4zS6
