Posted on July 27, 2017 by Daisy Nip | 1 Comment

The Planning Committee announced a call for abstracts for the upcoming MLGSCA & NCNMLG Joint Meeting 2018. Papers, lightening talks, and posters are welcome. The 2018 Joint Meeting will take place in Scottsdale, AZ, for four days, from January 21 to January 24, 2018. Abstract submission deadline is November 1, 2017.

The 2018 MLGSCA & NCNMLG Joint Chapter Meeting Planning Committee is soliciting submissions for contributed papers, lightening talks, and posters for the upcoming meeting: Crossing the Canyon: Bridging Divides and Navigating Waters, January 21 – 24, 2018, in Scottsdale, AZ.

We want to hear from you! Papers, lightening talks, and posters may describe any research or practice of interest to the medical library community.

Presenters should be prepared to speak between 12-15 minutes. Lightening talks are limited to five minutes, and serve as a way to participate in the conference in a less formal manner than a contributed paper.

Note: Contributed papers are oral presentations; a complete text of the paper is not required.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 1, 2017

You will hear back from us before the early registration deadline on November 15.

For POSTERS:

  • Submit a copy of an abstract (approximately 250-300 words) describing the poster.
