Conference Theme  

Current trends and future shifts in the academic world continue to impact library services, collections, and staff.  Forces of change are leading us towards new ways of collaboration and innovation in our libraries, throughout campus, and beyond.  Expectations are high -  but resources are not!  Now more than ever, librarians need to communicate, share ideas, and employ creative strategies to help us exceed expectations and stay relevant.             


Presentation Format

The ACRL Washington board is now accepting proposals for concurrent sessions.  Sessions will be approx. 60 minutes long.  Please indicate the format your session would take: presentation, workshop, discussion, panel discussion, etc.   Sessions should address the conference theme but may relate to any aspect of academic librarianship, including:


o   Reference / Instruction

o   Collections / Liaison Work 

o   Outreach / Advocacy 

o   Marketing / Public Relations

o   Partnerships / Collaborations

o   Assessment / Strategic Planning
