Share Your Research and Innovative Practices at the 2021 MCMLA/Midwest Joint Chapter Meeting!

The Joint Research Program Committee invites poster, paper, and lightning talk abstract submissions on any health sciences librarianship topic for the 2021 MCMLA/Midwest Joint Chapter Meeting. The meeting will take place virtually from October 13-15, 2021.

Submission to present at the MCMLA/Midwest Joint Chapter Meeting is open to members and non-members of MCMLA and the Midwest Chapter. Papers will have 20-30 minutes for their presentation, while lightning talks will have 5-10 minutes. Posters will be available in an online tool with optional audio narration. For accepted submissions, at least one author should be in attendance at the virtual conference.

Submission of work that has previously been presented at MLA but not at MCMLA/Midwest Chapter is welcomed and encouraged for this year’s joint meeting. Both program descriptions and research projects are encouraged. Feel free to forward this announcement to potentially interested parties.

Deadline for submissions is June 4th. Early submissions are welcomed and appreciated. Acceptance decisions will be sent out by July 30th.

Never submitted a structured abstract for a conference before? Join us for an informal Structured Abstract Brown Bag on May 21, 1:00 p.m. CT (12:00 p.m., MT, 2:00 p.m., ET). We'll talk about requirements for conference abstracts, types of presentations, and answer any questions you may have. The session will be recorded.

Please contact Research Program Committee co-chairs Emily Vardell or Jolene Miller with questions.


  • Abstracts should be kept under 250 words. Structured abstracts are preferred. Find more information about structured abstracts.
