Emerging Library Professionals

What is the Emerging Library Professionals Interest Group (ELP)?

The Emerging Library Professionals Interest Group is designed to provide a faith-based support system for those who are new to the profession and to help new association members become actively involved in the association and the profession. The mission of the group is to create networking opportunities, promote ACL membership among emerging library professionals, and to create in-person and online forums (via a Google Group) for emerging librarians to openly share resources and to freely discuss topics relevant to new professionals in the library community. 

Who can join the Emerging Library Professionals Interest Group?

Any ACL member who is new to the profession or the association. "New" shall be defined by the interested individual and not limited by number of years of experience.

How can I join?

Email and request to be placed on the Emerging Library Professionals Group discussion list.
