Imagine a future where we explore innovative methods for driving the transformation of libraries, learning, and research, and inspire academic and research libraries and librarians to become catalysts in exceptional research and learning. That future is now, and the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) challenges you to become part of this future by participating in the ACRL 2013 conference to be held in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 10-13, 2013. We invite you to contribute your ideas and be part of the conference that inspires transformation in libraries, learning, and research.
The ACRL Plan for Excellence envisions a future where academic and research librarians and libraries are indispensable to a thriving global community of learners and scholars. The ACRL 2013 committee invites you to help realize this vision by submitting a proposal for ACRL 2013: Imagine, Innovate, Inspire. We challenge you to imagine, innovate, and inspire your colleagues and others in the higher education community with proposals that explore the most dynamic and challenging issues and ideas facing academic and research librarians today.
The ACRL 2013 committee assembled a list of 40 tags to describe many of these compelling issues. We invite you to submit proposals and tag them with up to three keywords. These issues and topics will provide a framework for us to think about how we can advance our field and consider practical strategies to help us achieve these advancements. The tagging system will emphasize connections among the conference content and help all participants identify and sort through the wide variety of dynamic interactions and exchanges that define ACRL conferences.
