Sad about missing your colleagues in Chicago this summer? Don’t fret! ACRL is pleased to host ACRL Together Wherever, a week of virtual programming and networking opportunities for the academic and research library community to be held June 8-12, 2020. Keep up with what’s going on in the profession at a time when it has never been more critical. At a difficult time for us all, you make a world of difference.
Presented in Zoom, ACRL Together Wherever features 14 high-quality programs covering topics including algorithm bias, telling your library’s story, invisible labor in archives, open peer review, drag queen story hour, and the ACRL President’s Program, “Shifting the Center: Transforming Academic Libraries through Generous Accountability.” Learn new ways to face today’s challenges and ask your most pressing questions to thought leaders in the profession. Take time after each session to network with presenters and other attendees and get more in-depth on what matters most to you
ACRL Together Wherever is presented free of charge to all with a suggested donation. 100% of donations go to the ACRL Advancement Fund, which supports programs and initiatives that strengthen ACRL’s influence in higher education and its ability to create diverse and inclusive communities in the association and the profession. If you are able, feel good about giving now when it means more than ever.
