ACRL 2017 Conference

Submitted by Susan Archambault on March 31, 2017 - 11:17am

Last week, I presented a poster about CORA at the ACRL 2017 conference in Baltimore. Thanks to all the librarians who stopped by to say hello! Librarians Elisa, Lisa, and Margaret also led the panel “What’s Social Justice Got to Do with Information Literacy?”. They gave a shout-out to CORA by mentioning all their social justice assignments are housed here. Some sample tweets from the conference:

 Social justice and critical librarianship were definitely major themes at the conference this year. Other prominent themes included open access, research impact and scholarly communication, data literacy, and the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Highlights included a panel promoting the exciting new white paper “Global Perspectives on Information Literacy.”  There was also an inspiring session called Take It Online: Building Librarian Competency in Online Teaching and Learning. And of course, there were three outstanding keynote speakers! You can read all the ACRL 2017 proceedings or look at ACRL presentation slides sorted by the “teaching and learning” tag.
