July 30, 2020      
SEFLIN presents this conference annually to library staff from our 38 member institutions and across Florida including posters, breakout sessions, and keynotes.
Due to complications of the Covid-19 virus the conference will be held virtually in 2020.
LED SEFLIN: Libraries Exploring Design
Libraries are striving to understand and meet the needs of our communities. Digital and physical library spaces are increasingly complex and challenging. The SEFLIN 2020 Online Regional Conference will dive deep into how libraries are experimenting and innovating with new approaches, new tools and new perspectives. How are we using creative thinking to enhance services, improve outcomes, and measure library services for our students and patrons?

Virtual Poster Sessions submission still open

You are invited to submit a proposal to our Virtual Poster Session, which will take place Jul 26 – 30, 2020. Proposals are due June 15, 2020. Virtual posters resemble a traditional poster session but the online format allows for more innovation, creativity and the ability to access online. SEFLIN is following the model of the ACRL’s Distance Learning Instruction Virtual Poster Sessions – Take a look at ACRL’s 2020 posters here . Virtual poster session presenters create short presentations of their work that are posted within a website and available online. The traditional poster format can be presented virtually but presenters are encouraged to use interactive and multi-media formats to create their virtual posters. All posters will be hosted on the SEFLIN website. Support for developing a virtual poster will be available from SEFLIN. During the poster session week presenters will be asked to engage with attendees through the comment section where viewers will be able to comment and ask questions about your work. The posters will be archived on the SEFLIN website so that they are available into the future.
