Whether you work at an R1 institution or as a solo librarian, be sure to check the box for the Iowa Chapter / ACRL when you join or renew your Iowa Library Association membership. What do you get for your $5?
- A professional network of colleagues who understand and value what you do.
- Opportunities to advance your career by serving on committees, presenting at conferences, or participating in professional development.
- Discounts to attend our annual spring conference to be held at Iowa State University in May.
- A sounding board for questions or problems you are experiencing from dozens of experienced librarians who have “been there and done that.”
- A mentor? A mentee? A research partner?
- Eligibility for conference scholarships and other competitive monetary awards.
You can assist us by mentioning ILA/ACRL to your coworkers who may be new to the state or who are looking for new ways to be involved in our profession. You can also fill out this survey to nominate (or self-nominate!) folks to fill out committee rosters.
If you’ve already renewed your ILA membership and your Iowa Chapter ACRL membership for 2024, thank you!
