Call for papers

Call For Papers (closed April 5, 2006)

This year’s theme was selected to highlight the organization’s increasing international presence. We invite submission of abstracts in any one of the following topic areas.

IAMSLIC in Action
This session will highlight our organization and the many ways it has advanced the profession. Examples of possible presentations include, but are not limited to, regional developments fostered by IAMSLIC or collaborative projects undertaken by members.

Indigenous Fisheries Information: Collection and Dissemination
Portland, located near the Bonneville Dam and home to the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission, is a perfect setting to explore ways these non-traditional resources have been discovered and used.

A Fresh Look at Aquatic Information
For the first time the conference will include an entire session on topics related to freshwater information.

Librarians as Catalysts in Narrowing the Digital Gap
In 2002, IAMSLIC devoted its conference to the digital divide. Four years later, we return to the topic for an update on activities librarians have undertake to address this ongoing concern.

Submissions outside these topics will be considered, but may be given a lower priority.

* An abstract is required for consideration by the committee.
* Oral presentations are typically allotted 20 minutes, not including questions.
* Submissions may be for papers, posters or panel sessions.
* Conference registration is required in order to present an accepted paper.
* All submissions will be reviewed for relevance to the conference theme, potential interest of the topic for members, and appropriateness of format.

Abstracts must be received by April 5, 2006 to receive priority consideration with the committee’s responses following in approximately thirty days.
