Digital Initiatives Symposium: Extended Call for Posters
Although we've reached capacity for concurrent and panel sessions, the Digital Initiatives Symposium at the University of San Diego still has room for more posters.
Submit posters by Monday, Feb. 20.
We welcome posters from organizations, including colleges and universities of all sizes, community colleges, public libraries, special libraries, museums, and other cultural memory institutions. We recommend a poster size of 24" x 36" mounted on foam board. (Foam board and adhesive will be provided at the symposium for those traveling by air.) Posters will be displayed on easels (not bulletin boards) at the event.
All poster submissions will be evaluated based on the relevance of the topic and potential to advance thinking about digital initiatives, institutional repositories, and scholarly communication. Registration fees will be waived for accepted presenters.
