"Scholarly communication is at the heart of science. Poster sessions are a time honored method of presenting research results in a visually appealing, concise format. However, designing scientific posters that are both informative and easy to navigate can be a daunting task, even for the most experienced researcher. What role does the library play to help students learn the artful skill of conveying complex scientific results in a clear and succinct poster presentation? Librarians from Brigham Young University will share their experiences sponsoring an undergraduate student research poster competition."
