Join us for the ACRL 2011 Wrap-Up Webcast!

April 20, 2011 from 2-3 PM EST

(ACRL attendees –both virtual and on-site– should check their email for login information)

With over 3,000 face-to-face attendees and just under 500 virtual conference attendees, ACRL 2011 was one of this years premier conferences for the academic library crowd. Did you participate? What did you love? What could have been done better? Join us for a wrap-up webcast to share your ACRL experience.

Panelists will look back at ACRL 2011 to highlight trends and observations from the conference. Our presenters will reflect a variety of different viewpoints:
  • Steven Bell, Associate University Librarian for Research and Instructional Services at Temple University’s Paley Library will discuss the 2011 conference in comparison to previous conferences
  • Melissa Gold, Science Librarian at Millersville University will discuss her reflections as a first-time attendee
  • Jennifer Huck, MLIS Candidate, School of Library and Information Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison (and recipient of an ACRL Library School Student Scholarship) will discuss the conference from a student perspective
  • Anali Perry, Collections and Scholarly Communications Librarian at Arizona State University Libraries will discuss pros and cons of attending virtually

The webcast will be moderated by Erin Dorney (CRD Treasurer and Co-Chair of the 2011 ACRL Virtual Conference). Time will be provided for Q&A, so bring your favorite ACRL 2011 impressions and thoughts to share with your colleagues. Don’t forget that all ACRL attendees have access to the Virtual Conference site (containing slidecasts, keynote videos, handouts and more!) for up to a year. And if you haven’t already, please complete the conference evaluation forms so that our professional organization can continue to improve your conference experience for ACRL 2013!
