Each session is scheduled for 45 minutes, including Q&A. We highly recommend allowing at least 10 minutes for questions. There are 15-20 minutes between sessions so you will have at least 15 minutes for set up. Please be sure that your session will fit into the allotted 45 minutes. We will begin and end on time.
Each session will have at least one moderator. The moderators will help manage the time and the Q&A. Since we will be on a very tight schedule, and in order to allow the next presenters enough time to set up, please be aware that the moderator will stop your presentation at the end of the session time, even if you have not finished. No one wants that to happen but running over will take away setup and other time from those who follow. Moderators will also be available to help with setup, pass out handouts, and to get technical assistance if needed. They will introduce themselves to you during setup. They will also give any final instructions or information to you if necessary. They are also moderating the chat for questions from our virtual attendees.
Each presentation room is set up with a laptop and the presentations will be projected into the room AND live-streamed to our virtual audience. The laptops will be PCs. Presenters will need to use the supplied laptops. Wireless microphones will be supplied in each room. Presenters are asked to send their presentation files in advance of the event so we can have them ready. We will not have printing stations for the conference and cannot guarantee availability at the conference site so you should bring copies if you have handouts for your session.
Presentations will be live-streamed and recorded. Your presentation files will be shared publicly on our website. The recordings will be available only to registrants. Archived presentations are usually available in January of the following year. Presenters retain rights to their presentations. Access Services in Libraries, Incorporated retains the rights to the recordings of the live streams and will make them available for a limited time.
