Our fellow SLA members in the Social Science Division have sent out an invitation to participate in a poster session that will be held by their division, along with the Museum, Arts, and Humanities Division and the Education Division during their open house at SLA 2009, which is on June 14, 2009, from 8 to 10 PM. The theme for this session is "Inspiration and Diversity - SLA Around the Globe." Proposals on any topic will be welcomed, but priority will be given to those that touch on diversity or international issues in the information world.
First prize for the best poster? A one-year membership in SLA!
Examples of posters from the 2008 conference can be found at http://sla.dsoc.googlepages.com/2008slaconference (scroll down a little bit to the section that begins with "Social Science and Museums, Arts, and Humanities Open House and Poster Session").
