poster session at the 2012 ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim! 
for poster sessions to be presented at the 2012 ALA Annual Conference in
Anaheim are now being accepted. An application form is available on the poster
session website, at http://www.lib.jmu.edu/org/ala/howto.aspx,

poster session committee encourages submissions from all types of libraries and
on any topic relevant to librarianship. Submissions may include a description
of an innovative library program; an analysis of a solution to a problem; a
report of a research study; or any other presentation that would benefit the
larger library community. 
session participants place materials such as pictures, data, graphs, diagrams
and narrative text on boards that are usually 4 x 8 feet. During their assigned
1½ hour time periods, participants informally discuss their presentations with
conference attendees. Titles/abstracts from previous years, and pictures of
sample posters, are available at the poster session website: http://www.lib.jmu.edu/org/ala.

notified by Feb. 29, 2012, whether their submission has been accepted for
