ACRL Science and Technology Section is hosting its Annual Research Forum and Poster Session

Want another opportunity to share your work at ALA Annual? Check out this
great opportunity.

The Research Committee of the ACRL Science and Technology Section is hosting
its Annual Research Forum (Sunday, June 23, 2019) and Poster Session (Sunday, June 23, 2019) at the 2019 American Library Association Annual Conference in Washington, DC.

The Research Forum and Poster Session provide an excellent opportunity to
share a wide range of research projects relevant to science and technology

Submissions for the paper and poster presentations are selected based on the
quality of the abstract and the demonstration of significant progress toward
completing the research project by June 2019.  Your submission should include:
brief background information about your project, the research question or problem that drove your project, the methods used, your findings and a brief discussion that includes the impact of your project.

Your proposal should total no more than 250 words. Because this is a blind
review process, be sure to include your name, institution, phone, and email
addresses of all participants (not part of word count) separate from your
abstract (the form has separate fields for these items).

Please submit your proposal via this form:

Submission Categories:
Research Forum Paper Presentations.  Papers are 12 minutes in length and will
be followed by a 5-minute question and answer from the session moderator and
audience members. Proposals should reflect research or initiatives that have
been completed or are currently in progress.

Poster Presentations.  Posters should cover research endeavors or practitioner
projects that enhance science and technology librarianship.  Proposals should
provide useful and practical findings, and describe opportunities for
discussion with participants.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: Friday, February 15, 2019.  Submissions are selected by the STS Research Committee. The Committee adheres to mentoring principles and a “blind” review process to select proposals. We strongly encourage you to remove any identifying information in your proposal prior to submission; otherwise, the STS Research Committee co-chairs will take responsibility for removing identifying information, which may unintentionally alter the text of your submission.

Acceptance of proposals reflects a commitment by the author(s) to present at
the ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC. Travel support from STS is not
available. Specific logistical details will follow upon acceptance.  Please
submit your proposal via this form:
If you have any questions, please ask the STS Research Committee co-chairs:
