Call For Poster Session Proposals

SUNYLA 2018: Throw Open Our Doors: Academic Librarians Open to New Experiences, Opinions, and Viewpoints
Finger Lakes Community College
June 13-15, 2018

Call for Poster Session Proposals

Deadline to submit: March 23, 2018

There has been a lot of talk about “open” lately — open educational resources, open pedagogy, open access, etc. At the SUNYLA 2018 Annual Conference, we will delve into the concept of openness through the more general terms of openly welcoming new ideas, campus partners, materials, and strategies into our libraries. Please join us at Finger Lakes Community College on June 13-15, 2018, as we explore how our academic libraries are pushing the boundaries beyond books and databases and opening new territory both within and beyond our walls.

The poster session will take place on Thursday afternoon, June 14, 4:15-6:15 p.m.

Please submit poster session proposals here: Call for Poster Session Proposals

All SUNY and non-SUNY librarians and staff are invited to submit proposals for the poster session.

Please note:

  • Wifi is available in the poster session area, as are a limited number of electrical outlets. If you plan to use an electronic display, please bring a fully charged device.
  • For information about expense reimbursement, please see the Guidelines for the SUNYLA Annual Conference expenses.

If you have any questions please contact April Broughton, april.broughton@flcc.edu.
