Don’t forget: Call for Proposals: 2024 Joint ACRL-NEC - NELIG Annual Conference


June 3-4, 2024

  • Monday, June 3: Hogan Campus Center, College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, MA 
  • Tuesday, June 4: Online

ACRL-NEC and NELIG sessions will take place on both conference days.


This year’s conference theme is

Two Steps Forward (One Look Back)
Or: There & Back Again

We invite you to submit session proposals that draw on past practice and experience to plan for and engage with what (we think) comes next for academic libraries and the broader library community. We hope to highlight all aspects of library work, such as archives, preservation & conservation, collection development, instruction, technical services, engagement, facilities, assessment, communications, and administration.

Please feel free to be creative in your interpretation of the conference theme.  There are many possible directions to go - here are just a few prompts to get you thinking:

  • Re-Energizing Our Work and Roles 
  • “We Haven’t Looked at It in 20 years!”
  • Rapid Change as a Constant
  • Library as Place
  • Prioritizing Inclusion
  • Collaborating In & Beyond the Library
  • Scaling Up or Down
  • Fostering Creativity & Innovation 

Proposal deadline: Friday, March 1, 2024, 11:59pm EST

Submit your proposal here*: Conference Proposal Submission Form


*The form requires a Google login for verification.  For information on an alternative way to submit your proposal, see the Call for Proposals page at the ACRL-NEC website.
