Poster Sessions

Posters sessions provide an informal forum to report innovative projects, introduce new services and resources, or test research ideas of interest to distance librarianship. Posters may include narratives, tables, graphs, and handouts. 

An articulate, expressive poster will contain only the crucial points of the research. Traditional elements include:

  • Introduction - objectives, context and hypotheses, or predictions
  • Methods - subjects, study site, and protocol
  • Results - including graphs, display of electronic content, etc.
  • Discussion and conclusions - significance of the findings
  • Acknowledgements and references

CREATING & MOUNTING A POSTER

Dimensions for a poster should not exceed 4’ x 6’. Posters should be a balance between the informative and the artistic, and they should strive to highlight pertinent information while keeping in mind the logistics of attendees effectively reading and understanding the topic presented. The presenter's name and institution should also be available on the poster.

PRESENTERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR:

  • Actual poster and visual materials which comprise the presentation
  • Printing of any handouts
  • Sign-up sheet and/or business cards to record interest or follow-up for the presentation
  • Laptop and power cords, if applicable

CONFERENCE HOST IS RESPONSIBLE FOR:

  • Backing for the 4’ x 6’ poster
  • Materials for securing the posters to the 4’ x 6’ backing
  • Table for handouts and other supplementary materials
  • Power supply for a/v equipment including the presenter's laptop
