ACRL’s Popular RoadShow Workshops are Going Off-Road

The ACRL RoadShow program brings high quality workshops directly to campuses covering a wide range of topics that help academic librarians tackled the greatest issues facing the profession today. The program, however, has been on hold due to the impact of COVID-19.

Now, workshop teams are pivoting the same great content from these workshops into new Off-RoadShow virtual learning opportunities. Current Off-RoadShows are being presented as multi-part webcast series designed for individual or group participation. RoadShow teams are working to develop additional opportunities that may be licensed to individual institutions, chapters, and consortia for a more customized experience.
