Register while space is still available for this always popular conference!
The Association of College and Research Libraries New England Chapter invites you to attend its 2013 Annual Conference: Communities in the Cloud, the Commons, and the College on Friday May 10 at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.
Whether you call it engagement, outreach, or ‘adding value,’ academic libraries connect with their users in meaningful ways that build community. They create collections, services, and spaces that bring people together and encourage creative inquiry, discourse, and collaboration. At their best, academic libraries are sites for developing the shared sense of purpose and place that is at the heart of academic life. Collaborative collection building with faculty and students, embedded librarianship, support for research and collaboration, first-year experience programs, and development of the academic commons are just a few ways that librarians connect users with the library and with one another. How does your library build community?
Please join us for a day of innovative presentations, panel discussions, posters, and networking as we share creative ideas and initiatives for building community in higher education. This conference will feature keynote speaker Lynn Sutton, Dean of Z. Smith Reynolds Library, Wake Forest University (winner of the 2011 ACRL Excellence in Academic Libraries Award).
