Spring 2015 Conference

Clarion, PA—Members of the Western Pennsylvania/West Virginia Chapter of ACRL (WPWVC-ACRL) will come together on Friday, June 5, 2015, at Clarion University of Pennsylvania for the chapter’s annual spring conference.
This year’s conference theme, Creating Connections, concludes a year of discussion about community building efforts at members’ home institutions as well as within the chapter. So far during academic year 2014-2015, WPWVC members have discussed and learned about model programs in the library science field that build community and create connections, being that the success and sustainability of 21st-century academic libraries will ultimately depend on the networks and relationships we build.
Gretchen Gueguen, Data Services Coordinator for the Digital Public Library of America, is to give the keynote address. The conference also features breakout sessions (including a multi-presentation lightning round), meetings of newly formed Interest Groups, and a graduate student poster session.
Registration includes lunch, which is being sponsored by OCLC. All are welcome to attend for a day of learning and networking, however, seating is limited. Cost: $25 members, $35 nonmembers, $15 students.

Registration closes at 5 pm on May 29, 2015
