ACRL 2017 Conference Buddy Program Looking for Mentors

Dear ACRL members,

We anticipate almost 1,000 people will be attending their first ACRL conference in Baltimore. Wea��d like to help our first-time attendees make the most of their conference experience.

Experienced conference goers attending ACRL 2017 are invited to be a buddy for a first-time ACRL attendee by providing advice and guidance before or during the conference. Ita��s really easy — you dona��t have to have all the answers, just be willing to help out a newbie. If you’ve ever been to an ACRL Conference before and are willing to commit some time to helping a new person navigate the conference and learn more about ACRL, that’s all it takes. You may want to meet up at the ACRL Engagement Fair on Wednesday from 7:00-8:00 pm.

Ita��s easy to sign up! Just go to

Read new attendee profiles, and click a�?sign upa�? to be a buddy to that person.
The deadline to sign up is March 17.
