Virtual Conference

The ACRL Virtual Conference enhances the conference experience for attendees onsite and also provides an important professional development opportunity to those unable to travel to ACRL 2017.  The Virtual Conference will be offered live March 22-25, 2017.  The Virtual Conference gives you more for your money and provides an opportunity for you to revisit sessions all year long.

“I loved knowing that I can access the virtual conference for one year–really helped me decide what to focus on.”

ACRL 2015 Attendee


Features Slidecasts (PowerPoint presentations synced with real-time audio) from every contributed paper, invited paper, panel session, and TechConnect program presented at ACRL 2017.

Includes live webcasts accepted exclusively for online-only presentation. These webcasts bring librarians together within the virtual community to interact in real time with participants and presenters.


Virtual Conference participants will be able to see and hear every paper and panel presented in Baltimore, and F2F participants can revisit recorded sessions all year long.

Registration for the ACRL 2017 Virtual Conference (online-only option) will be available in early 2017.  Individual and group rates will be available.
