Call for Papers and Posters

The Program Committee of the Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association invites proposals for contributed papers and posters for the 2009 Midwest MLA Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio from October 3-6 at the Hyatt on Capitol Square. The conference theme of "Seek, Discover, Explore" lends itself to a variety of topics, and provides opportunities for presenters to show how they endeavor to seek out new and improved ways to provide cutting-edge library services, to discover innovative techniques for using technology and the Internet, or to explore how libraries connect people to information in creative ways. Papers and posters may highlight practical problem-solving approaches, report on research in librarianship, document collaborative efforts or outreach activities, or describe innovative programs, resources or services. Contributed paper and poster topics are as unlimited as your imagination, talents and creativity can devise.

Contributed papers will be presented on Sunday, October 4 from 2 pm until 4pm.

Posters will be on display on Monday, October 5 from 11am until 5pm. Presenters should be available to discuss their posters from 11am to noon on October 5.

For contributed paper proposals, submit a 250 word abstract to describe your paper. Include your name, position title, address, phone number and email address. The abstract should be sent to: Leslie Schick, University of Cincinnati Health Sciences Library, PO Box 670574, 231 Albert Sabin Way, Cincinnati, OH 45267-0574 or emailed to leslie.schick@uc.edu.

For poster proposals, submit a 250 word abstract to describe your poster. Include your name, position title, address, phone number and email address.
