What is a Virtual Poster Session?
A virtual poster session is similar to a traditional conference poster session. We will have more information about the poster session soon!

Poster Format Guidelines
Posters for the SCLA Virtual Poster Session will be presented in an asynchronous format. We suggest posters be created in one of the following formats:

  • Text (less than 500 words)
  • Image (.png, .jpeg, .gif) / Infograph (Canva, Piktochart, Venngage, etc.)
  • Video (less than 5 minutes) (.mp4) (hosted on YouTube or Vimeo).
  • Presentation (Google Slides, Powerpoint, Sway, etc.)
  • PDF

When creating posters, please keep accessibility in mind. Video should include captions or a transcript.

For examples, have a look at ACRL’s Distance Library Instruction Virtual Poster Session (2020). If the ACRL 2020 site is down, try looking at the 2019 poster sessions on the WayBack Machine.

How to Submit
Submit proposals using the poster proposal form. The deadline for submissions is September 15.

Please contact Sara DeSantis, Conference Chair.
