The Rare Books and Manuscripts Section of ACRL/ALA invites you to attend our annual Preconference held in Las Vegas, NV: 6/24 – 27/2014. Our conference theme this year is, “Retrofit: Exploring Space, Place, and the Artifact in Special Collections”.
Our Preconferences endeavor to convene our colleagues to discuss trends and issues regarding our profession with ample opportunities for professional development, library student enrichment, and an abundance of time to network with active members of our section committed to the success and future of our cherished field.
Note the call for papers (which includes an invitation for proposals from newer members with less than five years in the profession for a panel dedicated to their work).
First-time attendees can also apply for one of our scholarships!
