Call for Papers – Student Views: Research from Canada’s LIS Programs
The Canadian Library Association will host a student research paper presentation program at the CLA Annual Conference in May in Victoria, BC.
MLIS and LIT students, as well as recent graduates, are encouraged to submit presentation proposals. This is your opportunity to showcase and present your work at a national conference.
Presentations should be based on original research, either completed while enrolled in a program of study, or within one year of graduation. All submissions will be evaluated by a panel of referees, who will select five papers for presentation at the “Student Views: Research from Canada’s LIS Programs” to be held on Saturday, May 31, 2014, from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm.
Each presentation will be limited to no more than 10 minutes, with additional time for questions and discussion.
The submission must include:
- A cover page with the student’s name, title of the paper, student status with graduation date, and student’s contact information, including e-mail address.
- A separate page that includes only the title of the paper and a 500-word abstract, summarizing the proposed presentation.
- A faculty member’s statement attesting to the fact that the submission fulfills the above requirements.
- Submissions should be in the form of attachments in MS Word, rtf or pdf.
Successful candidates will be required to be in attendance at the conference on May 31st to present their paper. Travel and accommodations costs are the responsibility of each student.
