Call for Posters - MI-ALA Annual Conference 2016
Shaping Our Vision: New Possibilities for Academic Libraries in Michigan

May 12 & 13, 2016
Central Michigan University - Park Library

You are invited to Central Michigan University for the inaugural MI-ALA conference to showcase your innovations in library science. We are excited to see how librarians across the great state of Michigan are harnessing their vision to shape the future of libraries in Michigan.

We're interested in poster proposals on topics in every area of librarianship, from the front lines and from behind the scenes, addressing the range of issues of critical concern to academic libraries. Broad participation is encouraged from librarians, staff, LIS students, and administrators from all types of academic libraries (including but not limited to public universities, private colleges, and community colleges). 

Poster proposals should include a description of no more than 300 words. Poster proposals will be evaluated on relevance to the academic library profession, originality and creativity, and clarity/applicability of content and outcomes. 

Please submit your poster proposal by January 31, 2016. Submitters will be contacted about the status of their proposed poster by February 26, 2016.

You must be a member of MI-ALA to submit a proposal. Regardless of the decision on a proposal, MI-ALA encourages you to attend the conference. Poster session proposals may also be submitted if your presentation proposal is not accepted.  

Any questions may be sent to the Poster Session Coordinator, Kristen Mapes (
