By engaging with the 2019 ACRL President's Program, you will be able to
The ACRL President’s Program provides an opportunity for the current ACRL president to address a library issue of professional interest that may benefit the field. Traditionally, the Program has involved an event at the ALA Annual Conference. This year we are aiming to supplement that event with an additional event at the ALA Midwinter Meeting and a series of blog posts to be hosted on this site.
President Lauren Pressley decided to direct this committee's attention to the extremely important topic of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI). Since ACRL has recently established EDI as a Core Commitment of the organization, the goal of this Program will be to provide resources for learning and advocating for improvements across academic libraries. We hope to learn and grow together, and reiterate our belief that a more welcoming, more supportive, and safer academic library world is possible for all.
