Final Papers

Final papers are the final, polished version to be presented in the conference proceedings. ARL staff will copy edit drafts for consistency and format for publication on the web. Final publication of the conference proceedings is expected by the end of June 2019.

Please use Chicago style citations (“full note” endnotes and/or bibliography). A paper style guide has more information on house style and formatting for the final papers.
