Call for papers - 24th PLC - deadline approaching

Don't let the week slip by without submitting your abstract to the 24th Polar Libraries Colloquy in Boulder, Colorado. The deadline for submissions is March 16.

Send your abstract, along with your name, email address, and the names of any co-authors, to library@nsidc.org.  Proposals for papers, panel sessions, and posters are encouraged.

The conference theme, "Cold Regions: Pivot Points, Focal Points," may provide inspiration but any topic that applies to polar libraries or information is welcome.

Conference registration is required in order to present a paper.  Proceedings of the conference will be published online; some papers may become part of a special journal issue on library collaboration.

This week is also a good time to register for the conference at the early bird rate.

We look forward to hearing from you.
