Program Description
The theme for the ACRL Delaware Valley spring program is partnerships. Academic librarians cannot work in isolation; we must look beyond our walls in order to better understand the needs of our communities, to make the most of institutional resources, and to provide successful, high-impact programs and services. Collaborating with our stakeholders improves the quality of our services, increases our visibility in the community, and leads to new initiatives. How does one get started on building university and community relationships? What are the best practices? Where are the opportunities? What are the success stories?

All are invited to submit proposals for presentations that fit the theme of partnerships and address one of the following topics.

  • Scholarship and Publishing
  • Learning and Assessment
  • Co-curricular and Extra-curricular Partnerships
  • Communication and Outreach
  • Project Management
  • Technology and Data Services
  • Community Service
  • Archives

Format Options
Please choose from the following:

  • Interactive Session (30-40 minutes)
  • Short Presentation (20 minutes)
  • Long Presentation (40 minutes)
