2015 ACRL WA-OR Joint Fall Conference
Thanks to all of the librarians who have submitted proposals for the 2015 ACRL WA-OR Joint Fall Conference. We now have program that is full of excellent and innovative content. We're very excited to announce that Susan Barnes Whyte, director of Linfield College Libraries will be our conference keynote speaker.
If you have questions about the conference or are curious about the Pack Forest venue, please check out the Conference FAQ list.
The ACRL Washington & Oregon Joint Fall Conference will happen October 22-23, 2015 at beautiful Pack Forest Conference Center in Eatonville, WA.
Our theme for 2015 is Forging Partnerships, Opening Doors. Some possible distillations of this theme include: open access/open education; collaborative or shared efforts between libraries and with other organizations; libraries and librarians in the arenas of social justice, challenging oppression, and confronting bias; the changing contexts of our core mission; navigating copyright, licensing, and fair use in providing content to our patrons.
Scholarship applications will open soon and will be awarded before the registration deadline of October 6th.
We hope to see you there!
