ACRL 2021 Virtual Conference registration has yet to open.

When it does, all the rates and details will be here first. In the meantime, we’re working with member leaders and getting ready to give you everything you know and love about ACRL Conferences in April of 2021…

Connections with Your Peers

ACRL connects you to people in the profession who can help you learn and grow. They understand because they live it too and there are more ways than ever to control your experience. Want to hide and just watch sessions? No problem. Want new connections every day? The whole range of experience is up to you. Be as private or as personable as you want to be.

Easy to Navigate Agenda

It will be easier than ever to schedule your time and choose what is most relevant to you. With sortable tags and session types, we’ll make it easy for you to plan your days and make it easy for you to attend what matters most to you.

The Best Content

The most relevant timely sessions with diverse and engaging speakers and thought leaders, ACRL 2021 is where you need to be. Multiple formats fit every learning style from 5 mins to 90 mins, from large groups to one on one, there’s options for everybody. Ensure your knowledge is on par with the skills you need to succeed.

Virtual Exhibit Hall

Exhibitors and sponsors will be ready to welcome you to their virtual booths and demos and maybe even tempt you with virtual games, quizzes, and prizes. Check out the best services and tools in the profession. With the pace of change, you can’t afford not to peek around.

On Demand and Live

A mix of on demand and live content will be offered, from those one-time-only-can’t-miss events to push-and-play when you want sessions. ACRL’s been doing virtual conferences since 2005 and we are confident this will be our most engaging and dynamic one yet.
