CHICAGO -  The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) invites proposals for the ACRL 2023 Conference to be held March 15-18, 2023, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Higher education has changed dramatically over the last few years. Academic libraries are addressing an increased emphasis on remote learning, rising calls for social justice, and an acknowledged need for flexibility that supports a sustainable work-life balance. At ACRL 2023, explore these issues and more around the theme of “Forging the Future.”

ACRL 2023 features seven session formats to suit a wide range of presentation and learning styles. Contributed paper, panel session, and workshop proposals are due June 3, 2022. Lightning talk, poster session, roundtable discussion, and virtual conference presentations are due October 13, 2022.

Submit proposals via the online form available on the conference website. Conference tags will position proposals within the conference theme and will guide attendees to topics of interest during the conference.

Through its Core Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and dedication to open and equitable scholarship, ACRL strives to develop an inclusive conference program that will provide opportunities to underrepresented groups that have been historically marginalized or excluded due to race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, economic background, age, and/or disability. We also seek participants from all types of libraries, positions, and experiences, including nonlibrary faculty, staff, and administrators. Individuals are encouraged to address how their proposed sessions and their personal and professional experiences will advance these goals, promote equity and inclusion, and broaden the perspectives of conference attendees.

Complete details about ACRL 2023, including the full Call for Proposals, are available on the conference website. Registration opens in September 2022. Questions should be directed to Margot Conahan at mconahan@ala.org or Tory Ondrla at tondrla@ala.org.
