CHICAGO - The ALA JobLIST Placement Center will host an Open House from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. EDT on Friday, April 1 in the Placement Center during the Association of College & Research Libraries’ (ACRL) National Conference in Philadelphia.

Representatives from various academic institutions will have an opportunity to showcase the quality of life at their institutions.  Staff will be able to discuss various aspects of campus and community life —the things that make each institution unique — such as arts, music, sports and recreational activities, cultural facilities, the work environment, etc.— without necessarily talking about specific jobs.   There is no cost to participate in the Open House.

Representatives may also use the Placement Center at other times during the ACRL Conference in order to conduct informal one-on-one meetings with conference attendees.

Academic institutions interested in participating in the Open House or using the Placement Center should contact Beatrice Calvin at bcalvin@ala.org no later than Friday, March 18, 2011.
