What about ACRLog?

The mission statement of ACRLog states that it focuses on “the issues of the day in the field of academic and research librarianship.” While ACRLog continues to address these relevant and timely issues, ACRL Insider focuses on communicating information about the association to members and the wider academic library community. The blogs work in tandem to provide a big picture view of the association and academic librarianship.
