Reframing Librarianship in the 21st Century – New England Chapter ACRL Annual Conference

The Association of College and Research Libraries New England Chapter invites you to attend its 2017 Annual Conference:

Reframing Librarianship in the 21st Century
Friday, May 12 at the Davis Center, University of Vermont, in Burlington, VT.


It is an era of reinvention for college and research libraries. Whether we work in cataloging and metadata, scholarly communication, archives, public services, instruction, or another area of librarianship, we have all heard a rhetoric of crisis, transformation, and rapid change applied to our work. The challenges we face have provided an opportunity to refocus on the foundations of our profession: our purpose and our areas of expertise. In reflecting on and redefining our work and ourselves, we are reframing librarianship for the 21st Century. This exciting topic will be kicked off by keynote Suzanne Wones, Director of Library Digital Strategies and Innovations at Harvard Library.

In this era of reinvention, how are we reframing ourselves, the work that we do, and our libraries?

How are we communicating around this shift within our institutions and beyond?

Join us for a day full of professional enrichment, loaded with fantastic programming, networking opportunities, and ideas that will pique your curiosity and challenge your intellect. Since we’ll be situated in beautiful Burlington, we encourage you to come for the conference, stay for the weekend!
