Call for Poster – BiblioCon2023

The 111.BiblioCon will take place in Hannover from 23 to 26 May 2023.
The organisers are the Association of German Librarians (VDB) and the Professional Association of Information Libraries (BIB). The motto of the largest and central continuing education event for German and European librarianship in 2023 is “forward to far”.
There will be an opportunity to present specialist contributions on the BiblioCon topics in the form of posters.

The submitted posters and clips will be reviewed and selected according to formal and content criteria. In the evaluation of the submissions we are guided by the following criteria:
– Innovative character
The organisers welcome innovative contributions with a future impact.
– Practical relevance
As organisers, we attach great importance to the participants learning things that are model-like and relevant for professional practice. In reports from ongoing projects, it is expected that not only project goals are reported, but above all, project results and implementation problems.
– Networking character
The evaluation takes particular account of submissions that encourage cross-disciplinary thinking and the acquisition of skills beyond existing professional boundaries.
– Creative ideas and technical implementation
Presentation and implementation should be in line with the content to be conveyed. A creative approach to the topic and the appropriate use of the available resources are expected.
The best clip and the best poster will be awarded at the closing event on 29 May in Hanover.
Equivalent to the lectures, the clips and posters will be archived on the BIB OPUS publication server following the 111.BiblioCon.

The posters will be displayed during the entire event. A separate poster area is available for this purpose. Two presentation dates are planned: Wednesday, 24 May and Thursday, 25 May, both during the lunch break. Authors are expected to be available for explanations and questions in the poster exhibition area between 12:45 and 13:30 on these presentation dates.

Please note the following guidelines for posters:
When creating your poster, be sure to respect the copyright, image and personal rights of third parties. Please submit a description of the poster and explain the idea and the planned content of the poster.
