Join ACRL’s Value of Academic Libraries Committee for an update session on the Value of Academic Libraries initiative during the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Boston, Mass., on Sunday, January 10, 2016, 1:00 – 2:30 PM, in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Room 253 C. Learn about a proposed new objective for ACRL’s strategic plan, the Plan for Excellence, to demonstrate how libraries advance issues of equity, access, institutional diversity, and inclusion.
In this session, four librarians will present examples of library programs that advance these issues and add value by contributing to university or college goals specifically regarding equity, access to college, and inclusion. They are:
Juleah Swanson, Head of Acquisitions Services, University of Colorado Boulder Libraries
Linda A. Kopecky, Head, Research Services, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries
Jaime Hammond, Director, Naugatuck Valley Community College Library
Melissa Bowles-Terry, Head of Educational Initiatives, University of Nevada Las Vegas Libraries
We hope this panel will start a conversation among librarians and library staff about this potential new strategic objective related to the Value of Academic Libraries.
