Libraries in Direct Action
In 2018, the core values of librarianship, including social responsibility, education, democracy, and intellectual freedom, have faced one challenge after another. How have academic and research libraries taken action to confront these challenges? What are we doing to uphold these core values?
Produced annually by the Greater New York Metropolitan Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries, this year’s event will take place on Friday, December 7th at Baruch College’s Vertical Campus in Manhattan.
If you are interested, please note that ACRL/NY offers three scholarship programs. Awardees receive a waiver of registration fees. Breakfast and lunch are included. Awardees are responsible for their own travel expenses.
