Paper and Poster Sessions at MAC 2011 Richmond!

Contributed Papers:

Ever wanted to learn more about how to create effective posters for conference presentations? Or do you want to discover how to promote your hospital library?  Or would you like to hear about how libraries are using iPads? While at the MAC-MLA Meeting in Richmond, plan to attend the Contributed Papers Presentation Session  on Wednesday, October 12th from 9:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. to learn more about these and a variety of other topics of interest to health sciences librarians.

Sessions will be held in the James River Salon A, B, and D Conference Rooms.  This year’s contributed papers session will include four speakers for each of the three themes: Instructional Programming and Outreach, New Technologies and Services, and Professional Development and Librarianship.  The full schedule of paper titles, speakers, and room assignments can be found on the MAC Conference website at

We look forward to seeing you at the MAC Contributed Paper Presentations on October 12th.

Poster Sessions:

In just 2 hours you can learn about over 30 different projects in health science libraries that will inspire you to try something new in your library.  At the MAC-MLA Meeting in Richmond there will be Poster Sessions from 11 am to noon and 3pm to 4 pm on Tuesday, October 11th in the lobby outside the exhibit area.

Projects range from the past – using Archives in new ways or collaborative print retention – to the future – learning how to get involved with electronic health records or mobile devices for librarians and patrons.  From ‘Food for Fines’ to e-Science, you will find lots of interesting and helpful ideas at the MAC-MLA Poster Sessions.

The full schedule of posters can be found on the MAC Conference website at  For any questions about the sessions, please feel free to contact the MAC Poster Co-Chairs, Margaret Henderson ( ) or Wanda Whitney ( ).  We look forward to seeing you at MAC in October.
