About ACRL New England Chapter


The mission of the Association of College and Research Libraries New England Chapter is to serve academic library workers and students by working together to provide service, leadership, and learning opportunities that are inclusive and wide-ranging and that address our regional needs and current trends in librarianship.


ACRL New England Chapter began officially over 46 years ago, when it was approved by the ACRL Board at the 1972 ALA annual meeting. The purpose of the Chapter since the beginning has been to provide academic and research librarians opportunities for professional growth by providing workshops and conferences as well as a network of colleagues for consultation and collaboration. Since the early 1990s there has been an effort to encourage library support staff to participate in the organization.


ACRLNEC is dedicated to providing an inclusive and harassment-free community experience for everyone. Organizers of ACRLNEC-sponsored events may require participants to abide by a written code of conduct.
