MLGSCA is soliciting submissions for a contributed poster session at the 2012 Symposium, “Information Treasure Hunt: Supporting Evidence-Based Practice @ Your Institution.”
Posters will be presented virtually as the Symposium will be a full day. You do not need to attend the Symposium in order to present a poster.
We strongly encourage you to share your efforts with colleagues and gain peer recognition for your work. The virtual poster session is perfect for presenting a small, completed project or the early stages of a larger project.

• The role of librarians in study design and research, such as participating in literature reviews for systematic reviews or other publications, or other tasks involving information use. Continue reading
