C&RL Forum: Mapping Library Contributions to Campus Internationalization

C&RL Forum: Mapping Library Contributions to Campus Internationalization

Will air live Wednesday, July 23, 2014, 1:00pm to 2:00pm Central Time

REGISTER in advance or VIEW live

Campus internationalization can be defined as “broadly referring to institutional efforts to integrate an international, global and/or intercultural dimension into the teaching, research or services function.”¹  How do academic libraries contribute to campus internationalization efforts? How do library internationalization efforts differ from or reflect campus internationalization efforts?  What services do libraries offer that support internationalization and what library organizational structures are most conducive to building these services? What are areas for growth? Join College & Research Libraries for a live panel conversation on library internationalization efforts. The panelists will discuss their C&RL pre-print study “Mapping Library Contributions to Campus Internationalization” and share ideas for both administrators and front-line librarians working to build these services.

College & Research Libraries 75th Anniversary Issue Article Selections

crl squareIn preparation for the upcoming celebration of ACRL’s 75th anniversary, the editorial board of College & Research Libraries (C&RL) asked the journal’s readers to help identify seven “landmark” articles from C&RL history to be included in a special issue of the journal to be published in March 2015 and discussed at the ACRL 2015 Conference in Portland, Ore.

The following articles were selected from a list of 30 finalists identified by the editorial board and a group of past C&RL editors, as well as one ‘people’s choice’ article selected by the readership.

  • Carla J. Stoffle, Robert Renaud, and Jerilyn R. Veldof, “Choosing Our Futures,” originally published in College & Research Libraries, volume 57 (May 1996)

“It was almost impossible to select a handful of essays from the 75-year history of College & Research Libraries to ‘represent’ its impact on research and practice in our field,” said C&RL Editor Scott Walter of DePaul University. “The editorial board, however, is very happy with the articles that have been selected through the work of board members, past and present, and more than 300 of our readers. Reviewing every article published in the journal since 1939 reminded the editorial board of the incredible contributions that our authors have made to research and practice in academic librarianship over the past 75 years, and we are looking forward to reflecting on those contributions and considering what they mean for the future of research in our field with the publication of this special issue in March 2015.”

The editorial board is currently identifying authors for companion essays from among leading thinkers in academic libraries and LIS education aimed at illuminating the contemporary, and ongoing, significance of these works. These companion essays will be published alongside the original articles in this special issue of the journal.

Complete details on the C&RL 75th anniversary issue, along with other ACRL anniversary activities, are available on the ACRL 75th anniversary website.
