CLA Call for Papers & Posters

From the CLA
Call for Papers and Posters
2011 Canadian Library Association National Conference & Trade Show
May 25-28, 2011
Halifax, NS

CLA is pleased to announce that we are now accepting proposals for papers to be presented at the upcoming CLA National Conference, to be held in Halifax next May.  We would like to encourage colleagues from the library, information, archival and other related communities to submit proposals for consideration.

Proposals are being solicited on any topic relevant to the Canadian library and information professional community. The conference has no set theme, and there are no defined subject streams - proposals on all topics of professional interest will be considered. The Conference Program Committee would like to encourage proposals which express innovative and creative ways for presenting information to delegates.

Sessions may be presented in any format: panels of speakers, single speakers, round-table discussions, debates, "un-conference" session, interviews - let your imagination guide you! The only restriction is time: you may request either a 60 minute or 90 minute slot in the schedule.

Poster presentations are also being solicited. These presentations take the form of display boards, with presenters available for one-to-one discussion with delegates at a specified time. Again, any topic of broad interest to the library and information profession will be considered.

Detailed instructions for submitting proposals are available on the CLA website at:

The deadline for submissions is 1 October 2010.

Questions?  Please contact Wendy Walton, CLA Conference & Events Manager, at or phone 613.232.9625 ext.302.

We look forward to welcoming you to Halifax!
