The online poster session will become available at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, October 20, and posters will continue to be accessible after the virtual conference ends on Thursday, October 22.

Submissions are invited from all types of libraries and on any topic relevant to librarianship and 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 populate a virtual “poster” with pictures, data, graphs, diagrams, narrative text and more. The suggested format of the virtual poster is a PDF or Prezi, although ILA may be able to accommodate exceptions if a participant has a particular preference.

The Poster Session Committee will consider the quality of the research, program or project as presented in the abstract in making its decisions. Applications are due by Monday, August 31. To submit a poster, please go here.

Please note: only Illinois library staff, trustees, students, etc. may apply. Vendors and others who offer services for a fee should consider a booth in the exhibit hall. More information is available here.
