DEADLINE PASSED: CFP: ACRL 2015

Submit your proposal for ACRL 2015

Libraries are living ecosystems that adapt, change and innovate to remain relevant to our users, our institutions, and the broader environment of higher education. Many of our successes and challenges come from shifts within our system: financial, human and other resources interact to generate services, collections and facilities, and these resources must be continuously renewed in order to ensure our future viability. Beyond our borders, however, academic libraries must also interact productively with other interrelated systems including publishers, public policy makers, information technology experts, and more. Academic librarians actively engage with these systems and increasingly challenge them to build a sustainable world that fosters a creative, robust community of information generators and consumers.

For all who are engaged in learning in this information rich society the challenge to achieve information literacy is vital in capitalising on the diverse and often overwhelming range of information choices with which we are continually faced.
