ARL and CNI Fall Forum to Explore Libraries and the Research Enterprise
Event Date(s): 10/05/2017
Register now for the 2017 Fall Forum co-sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI). The forum will feature the library as an essential strategic asset in the university research enterprise. The focus will be on how research libraries’ staffing, budget, resource allocation, and organization are (or are not) reflective of current institutional research agendas. What kind of transformational change is needed to close the gaps, and how soon can we get there?
The daylong forum, to be held Thursday, October 5, in Washington, DC, will include interactive programming on motivation and self-determination theory to underscore the vital role of staff agency in these transformations. Empowering librarians, archivists, and other professionals in the research library workforce; investing in their learning; and facilitating robust communities of practice are essential organizational strategies for libraries that aspire to assume a central role in university research advancement.
The 2017 Fall Forum registration fee for anyone affiliated with an ARL member institution or CNI member institution is $275; the fee for all others is $300. This fee includes a continental breakfast, coffee/tea breaks, and lunch. The registration deadline is Friday, September 8, 2017.
