Failing Forward: Experimentation and Creativity in Libraries

ACRLNEC Conference 20182018 ACRL New England Chapter Annual Conference

Friday, May 4, 2018

Hotel 1620 Plymouth Harbor
Plymouth, Massachusetts

We often talk at conferences about projects that went well. In contrast, we rarely discuss initiatives that failed, or unexpected obstacles that forced us to find another route to success. In our 2018 conference, the ACRL New England chapter is highlighting experimentation and creativity in college and research libraries by acknowledging that missteps and roadblocks are all part of the process. Join us in Plymouth, Massachusetts in May 2018 to talk about 'failing forward.'

The call for proposals is now closed. Presenters will be notified in early February. Registration will open in early February. The final conference schedule will be posted by the end of February.
