ACRL New England Chapter Annual Conference

The Association of College and Research Libraries - New England Chapter (ACRL/NEC) anounces its Spring 2014 Conference!

We're All in This Together: Strengthening Librarians Through Professional Development

Friday, May 9, 2014 @ College of Holy Cross, Worcester, MA


The job of an academic librarian involves supporting students and faculty in their varied academic pursuits. Our focus is on their needs; but to be successful, we must also focus on our needs. We best serve our constituents by being the best librarians we can be, but prioritizing and planning for our own professional development and growth is not always easy. How do we accomplish this?

Join us at the 2014 ACRL/NEC Annual Conference as we share ways to manage our professional development. Innovative presentation, workshops and panel discussions will cover such topics as, how to better connect library school students and new graduates with mentors within the profession; how to manage, communicate and adapt in a diverse work environment; how to become published; how to become library leaders.

Keynote speakers for 2014 are Susanne Markgren and Tiffany Eatman Allen, authors of Career Q&A: A Librarian's Real-life, Practical Guide to Managing a Successful Career.

Treat yourself to some quality "Me Time" on May 9th, at the 2014 ACRL/NEC Annual Conference.
