How to Present at ALA 2014 Annual Conference & Exhibits


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.

Poster sessions may present any of the following:

  • a description of an innovative library program
  • an analysis of a practical problem-solving effort
  • a report of a research study
