Last weekend, ALIA West held their abstracts and presentations session to help you prepare to present at next year’s New Librarians Symposium. The session was held in Perth and live-streamed via the ALIAWest Facebook page.
Tips included knowing your audience and scope, practising your presentation, and of course, being prepared for technology issues!
If you missed out, and are interested in submitting a proposal for NLSX 2023, you can catch up on the session via the ALIAWest Facebook Page.
If you’d like to submit a proposal to present at the symposium, you can find more information on the NLSX speaker proposal form. More details about the symposium itself can be found on the ALIA website.
This month catch up on ALIA in person and online events near you.
