The conference theme of “Step Up, Step Forward” lends itself to a variety of topics, and provides opportunities for presenters to: share ways they have advocated for their patrons, been involved in improving literacy, overcame current financial challenges, or improved collaborations beyond the library; showcase how they provide new and exciting ways to delivery library services, share innovative uses of technology both within and outside the library walls, or provide a glimpse into the future.
Papers and posters may highlight practical problem-solving approaches, document collaborative efforts or outreach activities, describe innovative programs, or report on research in librarianship, resources or services. Contributed paper and poster topics are as unlimited as your imagination.
Contributed papers will be presented on Sunday, September 26th and Monday, September 27th at both morning and afternoon simultaneous sessions.
Posters will be on display on Monday, September 27th from noon until 6:00 pm.
Presenters should be available to discuss their posters during the poster reception from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm on September 27th.

The abstract should be emailed to finnegan.brian AT marshfieldclinic.org or mailed to: Brian Finnegan, G.E. Magnin Medical Library, Marshfield Clinic, 1000 North Oak Ave, Marshfield, WI 54449-5460.
