These workshops will be in-depth, engaging sessions on a specific topic relevant to health libraries. We ask that the presenters place their workshop in the context of current or emerging practices, and link to the broader theme of the conference.
Important deadlines will be provided to presenters in advance of the conference. Tasks and deadlines for presentation formats will be assigned in mid-March.
Please consider accessibility when developing and delivering your presentation for CHLA/ABSC 2023. Making your presentation accessible to all helps everyone. Consider the following suggestions to improve accessibility of your presentation:
Use an easy-to-read font and font size.
Ensure there is an appropriate level of contrast between your text and background, and avoid using colour alone to draw attention to specific elements.
Consider including closed captioning or a transcript (e.g. using otter.ai) for your presentation. This might also include alternative text for images and verbally describe important charts.
We encourage all our speakers to include an appropriate land acknowledgement and positionality statement in their presentation. Refer to the Canadian Association of University Teacher’s (CAUT), Guide to Acknowledging First Peoples & Traditional Territory, section on Nova Scotia.
CHLA/ABSC's Code of Conduct applies to all presenters and attendees.
