Getting Involved in the ACRL Instruction Section
Get Involved in the Instruction Section
Welcome to the ACRL Instruction Section! With more than 4,000 members from all types of academic libraries, our group represents a wide range of expertise and experience related to instruction and information literacy.
As Chair of the Instruction Section this year, I invite you to become a member of IS, if you are not already, and to become active in the section as a member. The Instruction Section offers an array of professional development opportunities for our members and colleagues. The section presents programs at the ALA and ACRL conferences; provides forums for members to share and discuss ideas (such as online discussion forums, and ILI-L, the Information Literacy and Instruction listerv); and develops standards and best practices to inform and guide librarians' instruction and information literacy efforts.
I hope you will consider getting involved in the work of the section by volunteering to serve on a committee or task force. Please complete the Committee Volunteer Form; most committee appointments will be made in the spring. However you choose to participate in the section, you will find excellent opportunities to network with other professionals and get involved in information literacy initiatives that have a national impact.
To find out more about the Instruction Section, go to About the Section, contact a member of the Membership Committee, or see the list of committees and task forces for committee charges, task force projects, and member rosters.
I hope to work with you within the Instruction Section!
