Just a reminder from the NASIG Student Outreach Committee (SOC) for students to
submit proposals for the Student Spotlight Sessions for the [ 33rd NASIG
conference in Atlanta, GA, June 8 to 11 ](
). The theme of the conference is “Transforming the Information Community.”
The Student Spotlight Sessions will be held Saturday, June 9, from 5:00-6:00
p.m. Presenters must be available to discuss their showcases or present their
snapshots during that time.
The [ Student Spotlight Sessions ](
https://nasig2018.sched.com/event/Ds2N/student-spotlight-session ) will consist
of up to eight 5-minute presentations with a focus on an idea, project,
workflow, etc. Student Spotlight Sessions provide an excellent introduction to
professional presentations and look great on resumes!
Proposals may present a report of a research study, an analysis of a practical
problem-solving effort, or a description of an innovative program that may be
of interest to the NASIG community. Proposals should name any particular
products or services that are integral to the content of the showcase or
snapshot. However, as a matter of NASIG policy, spotlight sessions should not
be used as a venue to promote or attack any product, service, or institution.
