The Association of Christian Librarians hosts an annual conference in order to inform attendees about contemporary trends in librarianship, stimulate professional development, encourage networking, and provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas. The conference is also one way that ACL can bring our members into community to encourage one another as Christian librarians primarily serving in Christian higher education around the globe. Librarians should attend who are looking to advance in their profession, engage with like-minded professionals and be refreshed and encouraged for the upcoming year.
Here's what some attendees had to say about the 2018 ACL Conference:
"This conference was well thought through and put together by people who care deeply about ACL and the conference experience."
"I found a group of knowledgeable professionals, many of which are in similar situations like mine, who not only represent the field of librarianship well but also share a similar worldview as I. The conference was organized and provided a good mix of interaction."
"I loved the informative workshops, fellowship, and devotions!"
"I learned a great deal and enjoyed the sweet fellowship with colleagues and friends. The encouragement from others is so very welcoming and needed."
