Appointed as Program Manager, Association of College & Research Libraries
Founded in 1940, the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) is the higher education association for librarians. Representing more than 10,500 academic and research librarians and interested individuals, ACRL (a division of the American Library Association) develops programs, products, and services to help academic and research librarians learn, innovate, and lead within the academic community. The Program Manager will advance one of our highest priorities by contributing to ACRL's efforts to improve research around library contributions to student learning and success, which ties directly to our strategic goal that academic libraries demonstrate alignment with and impact on institutional outcomes. Working with an engaged community of academic librarians and library researchers, the Program Manager will advance research focused on student learning and success and promote findings to resonate across the network of higher education stakeholders. Additionally, this position will help academic library professionals to more fully embrace the future of information and libraries in higher education. The Program Manager will create and deliver content, programs, and services that encourage academic library professionals, their learning partners, and scholars to work collaboratively.
