Portfolios will be
submitted online to TrueOutcomes. If you have work in different file formats
(e.g., Word, PowerPoint, and Excel), you may submit more than one file as part
of your portfolio; but please combine all files in any one format. You may want
to use a combination of handout, transcript, and photos to document the poster
session. Adapt your material with a view to preserving content, clarity, and
convenient access. GSLIS retains portfolios for up to seven years.
