Do you have ideas to share? Consider sharing those ideas at the Health Sciences Librarians of Illinois 2021 Annual Conference, which this year is a virtual conference on October 27-29 (Wednesday-Friday). This year you have the option of presenting your ideas as a poster or lightning talk.
The afternoon of Wednesday, October 27, has been set aside for sharing experiences, best practices, or how lemonade was made out of lemons! Each presenter will be allotted 5-10 minutes, depending on the number of abstracts that are accepted. There will be ample time afterward for Q&A and lively discussion.
Ideas can include, but are not limited to, any area of librarianship, such as instruction, leadership, program development, communication, collection development, outreach, and evaluation.
If you have presented, or plan to present, a poster at another meeting this year (such as MLA or Midwest Chapter/MLA), please consider also submitting it for HSLI. Since it is virtual, let our members who can’t travel have the opportunity to see the work you’ve been doing! The posters will be virtual with a Q&A for presenters immediately following the lighting talks on October 27.
Abstract Submission Instructions
To apply for lightning talks, fill out the HSLI 2021 Lightning Talk Proposal Form, or submit an abstract of no more than 200 words to Charlotte Beyer at email@example.com, by Tuesday, September 7.
Contact Information and Special Instructions
For either submission type, it is expected that presenting author(s) must register for, and plan on attending, the conference. More information about the conference can be found at the HSLI 2021 Conference website. Any questions or concerns can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
