Welcome to the MLA '18 Late Breaking Lighting Talk Submission Site
The 2018 National Program Committee invites submissions for Late Breaking Lightning Talks that support the theme, “ATL: Adapting, Transforming, Leading.” Submit using this online abstract submission site starting on Monday, February 12, 2018 and ending at 6:00 p.m., central time, on Monday, February 26, 2018.

Lightning Talks are brief, focus on one main point, and are verbally oriented. They will be strictly limited to no more than 5 minutes of presentation time. Lightning Talks will be presented during one of the following time slots:
Monday, May 21, 1:00-2:25pm
Tuesday May 22, 3:00-4:25 pm

Plan your submission using the structured abstract guidelines. When submitting structured abstracts, authors will decide whether their abstract is a research abstract or program description abstract:
  • Research abstracts report on designing, conducting, and analyzing a research project.
  • Program Description abstracts describe the creation and improvement of products, programs, technologies, administrative practices, or services conducted by librarians and information professionals.

  • Authors should select carefully, as different criteria are used to assess research and program description abstracts. All criteria for both kinds of abstracts are available in the MLA '18 FAQ: Papers, Posters, Lightning Talks, and Special Content Sessions.

    Late Breaking Lightning Talks acceptance or decline letters will be sent by Tuesday, March 20.
