PaLA Conference Poster Sessions

October 15 – 18, 2017
DoubleTree by Hilton, Pittsburgh – GreenTree
We hope you will plan to attend the Pennsylvania Library Association Annual Conference to take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Pittsburgh–Greentree, located in a Pittsburgh suburb with close proximity to city attractions.  The PaLA Conference offers numerous ways to further your career with innovative educational programming and opportunities to network with your peers in the library community. 

Poster sessions provide an informal forum for library professionals from across the state to share their successful program ideas or innovations with colleagues. An effective poster presentation highlights, with visual display, the main points or components of your topic; the presenter fills in the details verbally and answers questions from those viewing the poster. The object is to gather feedback and to make connections with others interested in the same subject. If you have an idea for a program or study that you’d like to share, we invite you to present a poster!

The deadline for submission of poster proposals is Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

For more information about the conference, and to access the link to the session proposal form, visit the 2017 Conference Information Page.

Thank you in advance to all that submit proposals, we appreciate your dedication to PaLA and to Pennsylvania’s libraries!
