ACRL invites proposals for the ACRL 2023 Conference, to be held March 15-18 (Wednesday-Saturday) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Higher education has changed dramatically over the last few years. Academic libraries are addressing an increased emphasis on remote learning, rising calls for social justice, and an acknowledged need for flexibility that supports a sustainable work-life balance. At ACRL 2023, explore these issues and more around the theme of “Forging the Future”.

ACRL 2023 features seven session formats to suit a wide range of presentation and learning styles. Lightning talk, poster session, roundtable discussion, and virtual conference presentations are due Thursday, October 13.

In-person or virtual Conference scholarship applications are now available. ACRL anticipates providing over $115,000 in scholarship funding for ACRL 2023. Scholarships typically include complimentary in-person or virtual registration plus an additional travel stipend of $400 – $600 to support in-person participation.

Complete details about ACRL 2023, including the full call for proposals and scholarship application, are available on the conference website.
