for Proposals

Learner-Centered Librarianship

The Florida Chapter of ACRL (FACRL) is seeking proposals for presentations and poster sessions for the 2018
FACRL Annual Conference
“Learner-Centered Librarianship”
in academic libraries through and beyond instruction programs. Learning involves both content and resources, as well as information processes such as information seeking with connection to all aspects of library work and service models. As academic libraries
increasingly shift focus to learner-centered programming, collections, pedagogy and practices, an opportunity has arisen to rethink our roles in relation to the learning experience.  The 2018 FACRL conference will allow for reflection, planning, and development
in this growing area.
annual conference will be held on Friday, October 19, at the
Gulf Coast University Cohen Center Ballroom

in Fort Myers, FL.
