It's all here for you. So much good stuff!


ACRL 2017 features more than 300 thought-provoking sessions hand-selected by your peers.

Too much good stuff? Let’s take it one day or topic at a time. You can sort the schedule above by date, session format, primary tag, or search for particular speakers.  And while you can’t be in two places at once luckily, your conference registration allows you access to over 200 of these sessions in the Virtual Conference for one full year after the event!

Preconference and Workshop Registration: All preconferences provide a full day of in-depth active learning and require an additional fee when you register for the conference. Workshops provide several hours of active learning and are limited to 72 attendees. There is no cost for workshops if you are an ACRL 2017 registrant, however pre-registration is required (available now!).
