Brian Chee has agreed to let us use his plotter which prints (4′ x 3′) sheets
These sheets will be printed on News-stock so the colors won’t be as bright. If you want better quality paper or you do not get it into him by 12pm on November 15, 2013 you will need to print it on your own.
You are responsible for mounting your poster on foam core or poster board (36” x 48”). Both are available from the UH Bookstore.
Awards will be given for selected posters at the Mini Poster Conference, based on the following criteria:
Clarity: Poster had a coherent and effective message
Layout and design: Poster was well organized and neat (aesthetic composition)
Content: Poster content was engaging and well planned
Readability: Poster was legible from five feet away
What to submit:
1. Create and submit your posters as a pdf file to Brian Chee for free Printing (make sure pdf file is set up for “print” (not for “screen” or “web”) and make sure any pictures are a high enough resolution to print for 3’ x4’.
2. In email body please include the following information:

- Title of your poster

Things to Keep in Mind
Your poster will be displayed for the entire duration of the conference. You are asked to be present at your poster for the duration of the conference.
It is likely that no matter what the focus of your LIS career, at some point you will need to demonstrate the value of particular service, project or even your job to your co-workers, supervisors, to a department or institution or at a conference. It makes sense to start doing this NOW.
Participation requires only a small amount of energy in addition to what you have already put into your particular project. Share the good work you’ve done!
