Attn: SLIS poster presenters

B Sides and LISSO conference organizers want to offer you all a final chance to submit your poster abstracts to the “Unpacking the “Library”” conference to be held this March 25th at the Iowa City Public Library.

All you need to do is:

  1. Send a copy of your abstract (that same abstract you just turned in to the office) by March 7th, to
  2. Send your draft power point poster design (that same one you will be working on for the final presentation in April) by March 11th 3:00 p.m., to

And the conference organizers will print a draft version of your poster for you, set up your poster for you at the conference, and provide you with a space to gather feedback and comments on your poster and presentation. All you need to do is prepare your two-minute talk and show up for one or both of the poster presentation slots.

We are still finalizing the day of conference schedule, but there will be two poster presentation time slots so that if you are unable to make it to the morning slot you can make it to the afternoon.

Remember, this is good practice and a great place to get some feedback on your poster presentation. We will be providing feedback forms for your audience to fill out throughout the day so you can gather comments and advice from your peers.

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us. If you see us in the halls, please stop us to ask or feel free to email us at
