Call for Poster Proposals

The ILFA ILDS 2019 Conference Planning Committee invites everyone to share their ideas, projects and experiences by presenting a poster during the conference. The theme is Beyond the Paywall: Resource Sharing in a Disruptive Ecosystem. The conference Program is being finalized.

We believe the conference is an important venue for the resource sharing professionals to establish a network of colleagues. And it is also the best occasion to learn from each other by sharing their experiences, skills and common interests. The poster presentation will be a venue to facilitate these functions of a conference.

Some examples of the topics are below but we hope to see many diverse posters related to the resource sharing services:

  • Cases of national resource sharing networks; their origin, development and current activities
  • Examples of regional or international resource sharing corporations and consortia
  • Creative projects to fulfill users’ information needs through the resource sharing services
  • New software or tools used to facilitate the resource sharing
  • Trends of global/local resource sharing services
  • Resource sharing and the impact of copyrights restrictions
  • Resource sharing and e-Books and/or other digital resources
  • Tips and Tricks for citation verification and finding holding libraries
  • Issues with shipping and delivery of physical materials

Maximum and recommended poster size is: European size A0 – 1189 mm (high) x 841 mm (width) which corresponds to the US ANSI paper size, E size – 44 inch (high) x 34 inch (width).

Those who are interested in the poster proposals, please use the form to submit the proposals.
