Magdalena Gomułka, NPSIG


Dr. Bruce Herbert from Texas A&M University, USA
“In this presentation, we will discuss the ins and outs of creating posters that can speak to your audience and help them relate to your topic. In an effort to help you convey your ideas to your viewers, we will also look at the best ways of giving the poster presentation in a conference or a convention.”

Edward Junhao Lim from New York University, Shanghai, China
“Edward will share about the philosophy behind Derek Crowe’s Designing Butter Posters, the logistics behind poster presentations, and how we can make the most out of any awkward poster presentation at your next library conference.”

Juliana Es M. Munawir, Mohamed Fadzli M. Fauzi from Selangor Public Library Corporation, Malaysia
“Writing is challenging. Imagine having to describe a 2-5 years project into 200 words. There’s so much to tell, so many experiences to share. If that’s not challenging enough for you, then how about transferring all those years of experiences into one poster that describes it all. We would like to share with you our process of visualisation for the poster. Imagine the poster as a world. A world that had only existed in words and imagination. However, instead of forcing our ideas and perspectives into people’s minds, we will substantiate and convey every detail through our poster. That is what forms the basis and perspective of Malaysian posters.”
