Dear colleagues, 
As another year comes to a close, and you reflect on all you accomplished over 
the past twelve months, the ALA Poster Session Committee encourages you to 
consider sharing your best work and ideas with the library community at the ALA 
Annual Conference. 

Proposals for poster sessions to be presented at the 2011 ALA Annual Conference 
in New Orleans are now being accepted. An application form is available on the 
poster session website, at http://www.lib.jmu.edu/org/ala/howto.aspx, and the 
deadline for submission is January 7.
The 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. 

Poster 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.
The deadline for submitting an application is January 7, 2011. Applicants will 
be notified by Feb. 28, 2011, whether their submission has been accepted for 
presentation at the conference, prior to the ALA Early Bird Registration 
deadline. The 2011 ALA Annual Poster Sessions will be held June 25 and 26, 2011 
(the Saturday and Sunday of the conference) at the Ernest N. Morial Convention 
Center in New Orleans.
Questions about poster session presentations and submissions may be directed to: 

Luke Vilelle, chair of the ALA poster session committee, lvilelle at hollins.edu
