Saturday morning began with ACRL 101, which was my Emerging Leaders project. Outgoing ACRL president Julie Todaro led the membership meeting. She emphasized the content ACRL is putting out there, especially in the many wikis in progress. Incoming ACRL president Erika Linke talked about advocacy and emphasized that it’s not just legislation. Mary Ellen assured us that they have been listening to feedback. We wanted online learning opportunities and they’ve increased those opportunities. The ACRL conference will also have an online component. The membership component ran a little long, but they did a great job of getting it back on track for the ACRL 101 section to still allow a half an hour for meeting with section representatives at the end. The PowerPoint will be available on the New Member Wiki.
