Call for Presentations

We are currently seeking presentations for the NLHLA Annual Conference, which will take place this year on Friday, April 17, 2015.

Please consider putting together a presentation on a topic of your choice, whether it be a project from your workplace, your research, a current trend, or changes and challenges facing health libraries and librarians. Our conference does not have a theme—we’re interested in any and all topics that are of interest to you!

You may choose from the following formats:

  • Full presentations – a 20-minute presentation and 10 minutes for questions
  • Lightning Round presentations – a 5-10 minute presentation
    The Lightning Round is ideal for introducing attendees to research or programs that are-in-progress, describing something you tried that didn’t work out, or getting feedback on an idea you’re mulling over.

Please send a brief abstract (1-2 paragraphs) to Kristen Romme (kromme@mun.ca) no later than Friday, March 20, 2015.

Save the Date!

The 2015 NLHLA Conference will be held in the McCann Room (Education Library, Memorial University) on Friday, April 17. A reminder that it’s never too early to start thinking about presentation topics!
