Presentation Opportunities at TLA2019

TLA Annual Conference, TLA News

While  the TLA2019  education program of more than 300 education sessions, is final, there are still many opportunities to share your knowledge and passion with the more than 7,000 attendees expected at TLA2019!


In this competition, brave souls stand before an audience and present timed talks on a set of never-before-seen slides. Contestants are expected to weave their comments around the projected images, and string the talk on a theme announced on the spot. Impromptu nonsense is guaranteed, and you’ll be amazed, and amused, by the creativity of contestants.

Collaboration Space

Have you identified a hot topic, innovative concept, or knowledgeable individual that will prompt great group discussions? Send us your proposal to host a 60 minute facilitated small group discussion about topics relevant to libraries or librarians.

Contributed Papers

Contributed Paper sessions provide a forum for TLA members to present their current research. There will be eight presentation slots available at the 2019 TLA Annual Conference. Submit your abstracts today!

Cosplay Fashion Show & Contest

The Cosplay Fashion Show will be the piece de resistance of Comic Book Day on Wed 17th from 4:00-5:00 in the exhibitor hall.  Be prepared to have your imagination run wild when characters and designs come to life.
