ACRL 2021 Proposal Deadline Extended to May 22

ACRL has extended the proposal deadline for the ACRL 2021 Conference, “Ascending into an Open Future,” to be held April 14-17, 2021, in Seattle. We know there’s a lot going on right now, so we’ve extended the contributed paper, panel session, preconference, and workshop proposal deadline to Friday, May 22.

A Format for Everyone
ACRL 2021
offers a variety of options for participation and features nine session formats to suit a wide range of presentation and learning styles to share your research and creative endeavors with your colleagues. Review the proposal elements and consult the conference tags to stimulate your thinking and position your proposal within the conference theme. Submit proposals via the online form available on the conference website.

Why Present?
Especially now, today’s higher education environment calls for innovative ways to support student, faculty, and institution success. Through the efforts of talented library workers, today’s academic and research libraries are providing more open and inclusive collections and services. Through our Core Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and dedication to open and equitable scholarship, ACRL strives to develop an inclusive conference program that will reflect the library community’s diverse range of race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, economic background, age, and/or ability. We also seek presenters and topics from all types of libraries, positions, and experiences, including nonlibrary faculty, staff, and administrators.

Due Dates
Contributed paper, panel session, preconference, and workshop proposals are due May 22, 2020. Lightning talk, digital poster session, roundtable discussion, TechConnect, and virtual conference webcast proposals are due October 9, 2020.
