Making Connections: Academic Libraries, Communities, and Purpose
May 18 & 19, 2017
Eberhard Center at Grand Valley State University, Grand Rapids

You are invited to Grand Rapids and GVSU for the second annual MiALA 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 make connections and show purpose.

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 librarian, 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 February 17, 2017. Submitters will be contacted about the status of their proposed poster by March 7, 2017.

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

Any questions may be sent to the Poster Session Coordinator, David Scott (
