UPDATE: ACRL-OR/WA Joint Fall Conference

Due to low registration numbers, the ACRL-OR board decided to cancel our in-person meeting in Menucha.

However, we still want to offer everyone a chance to come together and share some of the amazing work that’s being done across our state. In place of the in-person conference, we will be offering two free virtual meetings, an online lightning talk and poster session from 10-11 am on October 28 and a social and skill sharing session from 4-6 pm on November 18.

Register for the October 28 session by clicking this link. More information to come about the November 18 social.
