Volunteer Now For ACRL Committees

The deadline for volunteering for an ACRL division-level committee is Tuesday, February 15, and I would like to invite you to volunteer. Serving on ACRL committees can be a greatly rewarding experience.  Volunteers benefit by:

  • making connections with academic and research librarians around the country,
  • enhancing their leadership abilities through consensus building and project management,
  • sharing their experience with colleagues,
  • gaining additional expertise about a new area of academic librarianship or updating expertise in a current specialization, and
  • advancing the work of the association and the profession.

Visit the ACRL website for complete details, including volunteer requirements and a link to the online volunteer form. Please contact ACRL Program Officer Adam Burling at aburling@ala.org or (312) 280-2521 with questions about the volunteer process.

I look forward to your service!
