>2010 NYLA Poster Sessions & NYLA Diversity Fair


The New York Library Association is now accepting submissions for the 2010 NYLA Poster Sessions & NYLA Diversity Fair to take place at this year’s Annual Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY. Complete details are located on the web at The deadline for submitting for 2010 is midnight on Friday, April 30, 2010.

WHAT IS A POSTER SESSION? A poster session is an opportunity for several presenters to share information about a research problem, project, or study with many colleagues by developing a table-top display on a set of poster boards. Several posters are available at one time with the presenters standing by their table to talk informally about the project with interested participants. The poster may include printed materials, graphics, and additional handouts. The session will last one and a half hours and presenters should remain close to their displays for questions and discussion during this time.

WHAT IS THE DIVERSITY FAIR? The NYLA Diversity Fair celebrates examples of diversity in the libraries of New York State and showcases possibilities for libraries who are in search of “diversity in action” ideas. Examples can include, but are not limited to, multilingual and multicultural programs, activities and services, creating and sustaining literacy (new and non-readers and other literacy issues), in-depth collection development projects, outreach services, service to people with disabilities, mobile library services, technology, and innovative services to other underserved or underrepresented communities.

These proposals will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the Conference Program Committee and you will be notified of acceptance by June 1, 2010. For any questions regarding the poster sessions or Diversity Fair, please contact: Johanna Geiger, Deputy Director (
