The Canadian Health Libraries Association / Association des
bibliothèques de la santé du Canada invites you to submit contributed
papers or posters for its 2009 annual meeting, to be held in Winnipeg,
Manitoba, May 30-June 3.  Papers and posters may describe innovative
programs/practices or new research findings and should relate to the
overall conference theme - "The Sky's the Limit / Horizons illimités".

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTED PAPERS

Join us under Winnipeg's limitless prairie sky, as we explore the
horizons of best practice, research, and the evolving role of health
librarianship.  Though papers will be accepted from a broad range of
topics we invite submissions that address, in particular,  activities
in the following areas:

On the Horizon

·         What is the future of e-health and e-resources?

·         What innovative programs will support health libraries and
health librarianship in the future?

 Beyond the Horizon

·         What opportunities exist for collaboration in the clinical
practice settings?

·         How can librarians partner with other professionals to
support evidence-based health and knowledge management and
translation?

Convergent Horizons

·         How will libraries adapt to the shifting landscape of
information delivery?

·         How can libraries facilitate the convergence of media,
technology and social networking tools?

SUBMISSION PROCESS

Cohen Baker at [log in to unmask] by December 15, 2008 with the
following information:

All those submitting abstracts for contributed papers will be
contacted by the Program Committee by January 19, 2009.

Please note that conference registration fees will not be waived for
presenters of contributed papers.


CALL FOR POSTERS

Poster sessions comprise visual presentations of research results,
innovative library programs or notable projects.  They provide a less
formal alternative to contributed papers and plenary sessions and an
opportunity for conference delegates to interact directly with those
responsible for the poster presentations.

We invite poster submissions that reflect the overall conference theme
of the "The Sky's the Limit / Horizons illimités" and in particular,
those that relate to the subthemes outlined above.

Accepted poster presenters will be required to submit electronic

Please note that conference registration fees will not be waived for

description of the research, highlighting the major elements that are
covered in the structured abstract

·         Posters are visual – add pictures, graphs, charts etc. to
make the poster interesting

·         Keep text to a minimum and use a large font size so that the
poster can be read from a distance

much text or graphics
