Discounted Early Bird Registration for ACRL Roadshow and CRD Workshop Ends FRIDAY!

March 5, 2020
Register TODAY to take advantage of discounts and join the Pennsylvania Library Association College and Research Division for two excellent days of professional development on May 18 and 19 at Penn State Harrisburg in Middletown, PA.
ON MAY 18, we will welcome the ACRL Roadshow Engaging with the ACRL Framework to Pennsylvania. This all-day workshop is limited to 100 attendees! The Framework’s vision of information literacy education as a shared responsibility of all educators suggests both opportunities and challenges for teaching librarians, as we expand pedagogical approaches and partnerships. This workshop supports librarians in engaging more deeply with the Framework and exploring ways that it may help to enrich their individual teaching practices, as well as their local instruction programs and institutions.
ON MAY 19, join us for the annual CRD Spring Workshop. This year’s theme is Pennsylvania Academic Libraries: Powering Progress with Essential Literacies. The day-long program will include two keynote speakers on student civic engagement and libraries: Ilana Stonebraker of Indiana University, and Abby Kiesa of CIRCLE, The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning & Engagement, at Tufts University. PA Forward Gold Star Academic libraries will share their journeys to gold, and other Pennsylvania academic library colleagues will present breakout sessions on essential literacy programming and resources.
The two-day workshop is valued at more than $175, but is available for PaLA members at an early-bird rate of just $77 and for non-members at $107 through LSTA Grant Funding. This early-bird rate expires THIS FRIDAY, March 6! 
Single-day registrations are also available for members at $47 and for non-members at $77. After March 6, all registrants must register for each day at the one-day rate.
Registration will close May 8.
Have a great program that focuses on any aspect of literacy? Submit a breakout session for the CRD Workshop!:

Support is also provided by the College and Research Division of the Pennsylvania Library Association,
