2022 MCMLA Annual Virtual Meeting

OCTOBER 27-28, 2022

The MCMLA Research Committee invites paper and lightning talk abstract submissions on any health sciences librarianship topic for the 2022 MCMLA Annual Meeting. 

Abstracts should be sent through this form

The theme for this year’s meeting is “Diversify”.  Diversify as in branching out, broadening ideas, changing up operations, bringing along change or making health sciences librarianship more inclusive.  The meeting will take place virtually from October 27-28, 2022.
Submission to present at the MCMLA Annual Meeting is open to members and non-members of MCMLA. Papers will have 20-30 minutes for their presentation, while lightning talks will have 5-10 minutes. For accepted submissions, at least one author should be in attendance in order to present at the virtual conference.
Submission of work that has previously been presented at MLA but not at an MCMLA Chapter meeting is welcomed and encouraged for this year’s meeting. Both program descriptions and research projects are encouraged. Feel free to forward this announcement to potentially interested parties that may not have received this email.
Deadline for submissions is June 17th. Early submissions are welcomed and appreciated. Acceptance decisions will be sent out by August 15th.
