“Bridging the Spectrum: A Symposium on Scholarship and Practice in Library and Information Science” offers a knowledge-sharing forum and meeting place for practitioners, students, and faculty in Library and Information Sciences and Services. Presentations on innovative practices, projects, and research activities are encouraged. Presentations may originate from any type of library, archive, or information services activity, and may encompass any aspect of Library and Information Professional work. Our aim is to host a diverse set of presentations and to foster unexpected connections across the spectrum of the information professions.

Format of Presentations:
The Symposium will include primarily two types of sessions: briefings, and posters. (However, other proposed formats will be considered.)

Briefings will be 15-minute descriptions of an innovative practice, project, or research activity. There will be morning and afternoon briefing sessions.

Posters will be exhibits describing a practice, project, or research activity. Posters will be viewable throughout the day, and there will be a poster session during which presenters will discuss their work with attendees.

Important Dates:
• Proposals Due: October 15, 2008
• Notification of Acceptances: November 15, 2008
• Final Presentations Due: January 10, 2008
