ACRL/NY Still accepting poster proposals until 10/27 for Symposium

Call for Poster Sessions

The 2009 ACRL/NY Annual Symposium, “Emerging Leadership in Academic Libraries” focuses on the importance of leadership in academic libraries today and the paths to achieving and sustaining it. This Symposium will address myriad questions of leadership: What does it take to be a leader? How do we mentor leaders within our institutions? How do we take charge of our own career paths? How do we move into leadership roles? We will open up discussions of leadership across the different stages of librarianship.

ACRL/NY invites you to submit a poster session proposal for the Symposium. It can address any issue related to this theme. Examples follow:

  • Professional collaboration
  • Management styles in libraries
  • Motivating/inspiring librarians
  • Getting yourself published
  • Experience in leadership development
  • Mentoring/mentoring programs
  • Creating new roles
  • Moving into leadership roles
  • Promoting yourself

Please email a 100-200 word description of your poster session proposal to Symposium Planning Committee member Gloria Meisel at by October 27, 2009 (deadline extended). Include author name(s), email and telephone contact numbers, and the title of the poster session. Presenters will receive a reduced Symposium registration rate (maximum of two). The successful candidates will be notified by early November. You will be expected to set up by 8:15 am and stay through the final poster session time of 2:45 pm. There is no wireless capability and no availability for electronic sessions. Posters cannot be displayed on walls. Rectangular tables and two chairs will be provided.

We look forward to your submissions.
