Submit A Poster Session

Share your best ideas and work with the national library community by presenting a Poster Session at the 2022 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC! 

The poster session committee encourages submissions from all types of libraries and on any topic relevant to librarianship. Submissions may include a description of an innovative library program; an analysis of a solution to a problem; a report of a research study; or any other presentation that would benefit the larger library community. 

Poster sessions were introduced to the American Library Association at its 1982 Annual Conference in Philadelphia. They are an effective forum for the exchange of information and a means to communicate ideas, research, and programs. 


Submissions are now closed.
