Dear Jane Smith Librarian:

I'm pleased to inform you that your poster, "Embedding Ourselves: A Look at One Business Library's Success in Embedded Librarianship," has been accepted for presentation in the first ever SLA Business and Finance Division Poster Session, addressing the theme of Business Information Literacy.

The poster session will be held Monday, June 15 from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM at the SLA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. In addition, the poster session will be located next to the room where the Annual Business and Finance Division Awards Ceremony will be held. At 5:30, when the reception starts, the doors between the rooms will be opened. This is to encourage attendees to continue viewing the posters after the awards have been given.

We have a great group of posters which should provide some stimulating discussion among the presenters and attendees. Congratulations and thank you for your participation.
