      Abstract: We’re all very excited to have you join us April 10–13, 2019, in Cleveland for the ACRL 2019 conference. The theme, “Recasting the Narrative,” is definitely an appropriate descriptor for current-day Cleveland. Gone is most of the manufacturing that made Cleveland the fifth largest city in the country in the mid-20th century. Our city’s current renaissance is built on medicine, arts, and foodie culture.

  • Applying the Framework as a reflective tool: A teacher learner perspective
    • Authors: Ethan Pullman
      First page: 416
      Abstract: If you teach information literacy (IL) according to the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education,1 then you have been introduced to terms like knowledge practices, dispositions, and troublesome knowledge. You may have also read several articles debating the Framework (for a quick overview, read Lane Wilkinson’s “The Problem with Threshold Concepts”).2 Regardless of where teaching librarians stand on the Framework, the discourse surrounding it doesn’t adequately address its potential as a reflective tool (as opposed to addressing student learning alone). This is ironic when considering that, at its core, the Framework’s foundation is based in “critical self-reflection, as crucial to becoming more self-directed in [a] rapidly changing ecosystem.”3

  • Realigning liaison with university priorities: Observations from ARL
           Liaison Institutes 2015–18
    • Authors: Rita Vine
      First page: 420
      Abstract: Since 2015, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has designed and delivered eight2 one-to-two day liaison institutes to participants from a dozen ARL libraries across North America. Modelled on the 2015 institute held at Cornell University,3 institutes are designed for liaison librarians, functional specialists, and managers who engage regularly with faculty, students, and academic administrators. Participants work in small groups to understand the changing landscape of librarian-faculty engagement by examining possible future scenarios for research libraries by placing themselves “in the shoes” of specific user groups to understand their needs and challenges. Through those insights, they consider new and needed ways to advance teaching and research excellence at their local institutions.

  • Securing community-controlled infrastructure: SPARC’s plan of action
    • Authors: Heather Joseph
      First page: 426
      Abstract: Late last year, the news of Elsevier’s acquisition of bepress, the provider of the popular Digital Commons repository platform, sent a shockwave throughout the library community. Hundreds of institutions that use Digital Commons to support their open access repositories quite literally woke up to the news that their repository services are now owned and managed by a company that is well known for its obstruction of open access in the repository space.

      Abstract: Since 2016, the public eye has turned to the problems of mis- and disinformation. As a result, many librarians sprang into action to spread the good news about information and media literacies. At the University of Kansas (KU), we initially joined the rush and created a media literacy LibGuide.1

      Abstract: The comment came from a fellow librarian when I asked if she had noticed our new proactive chat widget. Yes, she said, “that thing is so annoying.” When I mentioned the percentage our chat requests were up by her eyes got wide and she replied, “Really'” Yes, really, and I was somewhat surprised myself. I should explain.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 456
      Abstract: At the risk of a clichéd report on what I did this summer, I wanted to share a realization that I had at the while in San Diego (at ESRI GIS User Conference, a very practical, innovative, and diverse venue). This was the first time I have attended this conference. It is enormous with hundreds of sessions on almost any topic one could think of and has something for academic, industry, government (from local cities to federal agencies), nonprofits, and more. And, of course, there are a lot of glitzy technology and visuals.
