"I joined ACRL as a library school student because I knew I wanted to be an academic librarian and needed job hunting advice. It really helped to have ACRL mentors and to talk to future colleagues at the annual conference. I had a great job lined up before graduation! “ ~ Pearl Ly, ACRL member since 2007
“Programs offered by ACRL have not only contributed to my own professional development, they have also helped me with mentoring younger professionals who are becoming leaders in my library.” ~ Terri Fishel, ACRL member since 1985
Advice and support is also available through the seventeen section discussion lists.
