Call for Submissions

The 2021 CHLA/ABSC Planning Committee invites submissions for the Annual Conference to be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba (June 8–11). We are planning for the majority of the conference to be held in person in Winnipeg, MB, with a supplemental stream of virtual programming. We welcome and encourage submissions in both English and French and from all information professionals, including library technicians and librarians, on topics related to health libraries.

The online abstract submission site is now available. Submissions will be due on January 10th, 2021, at 11:59 CST. Because of the extended length of time initially provided for submissions, an additional extension of the call for submissions WILL NOT occur.

Abstracts for research projects or program descriptions must follow the guidelines on the Journal of the Canadian Health Libraries Association Author Guidelines. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Conference Program and in JCHLA.
