Call for Posters

This year we will increase the amount of sharing by holding an EBSLG AC poster session. 

This will allow for more member involvement with less overall preparation as compared to a full presentation.
It will also allow for more informal/semi-formal interaction between all of the attending members. This is your chance to shine a light on something you are especially proud of or an interest in sharing something unique you accomplished.

The call for posters can be on any topic or issue, similar to the papers callout. The posters can be focused on broad or narrow topics. 

Examples of similar posters can be viewed from the SLA Business & Finance Division:

Basic format suggestions:

  • Best sizes are:
    Size Width x Height (mm) Width x Height (in)
    A0 841 x 1189 mm 33.1 x 46.8 in
    A1 594 x 841 mm 23.4 x 33.1 in


  • Each poster must have a heading in very large type, 84 pt or greater. Your name and affiliation should also be noted in large type, around 72 pt. Headings and sub-headings should be at least 36 pt. You need not use all capitals for titles and headings, for this can sometimes make them difficult to read. Other lettering, including text and lettering on illustrations or charts, should be between 18 and 24 pt, and should have double or 1.5 spacing between lines. Use a simple font such as Times, Arial or Helvetica throughout your presentation. To make something stand out, use a larger font size, bold or underline. You can also frame a section of text by putting a box around it. All material should be readable from a distance of three feet or more.
  • More guidance will be posted here soon.

There is no limit to the total number of posters. Individuals should limit themselves to no more than 2 posters.One poster is the expectation.

Please submit your poster idea/title with a couple of sentences describing it by the Tuesday 31 May.
