SLA Biomedical and Life Sciences Division

Call for Posters

Librarians do more than just reference and technical services.  Are you a bridge from your library to a hospital, university or other parent institution?  What non-traditional ways does your library serve outside the larger institution?  Tell us about the impact you have had inside or outside of your library through the different roles you play. The theme of this session is,
Librarians' Roles in a Changing Environment.

The poster session will provide an informal and lively venue for sharing innovative ideas on topics that concern us all.  Please consider submitting an abstract for possible inclusion in the poster session. This is a theme that should engage us all, for it concerns the future of our profession.

We would love to have you share your ideas and experiences with your colleagues at the upcoming all-science reception and poster session at SLA in Seattle, June 2008, sponsored by the Biomedical and Life Sciences, Sci-tech, PAM, and Chemistry Divisions on Tuesday, June 17 from 7:00-9:00PM. 
Guidelines for materials and layout of poster presentations are available on the SLA Chemistry Division website at
Please submit your name, institution, fax, email address, poster title, and description (250 words or less) by email, fax, or surface mail to Eleanor MacLean at the address given
below. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2008.  Any SLA Member is welcome to submit an abstract for consideration. In the event that a greater number of submissions are received than can be accommodated, members of the  sponsoring divisions will be given first preference. All applicants will be notified no later than April 1, 2008 as to whether or not their proposal has been accepted.
