The 2016 candidates for ACRL vice-president/ president-elect will participate in an open online forum at 11 a.m. CDT on Monday, March 7. Come hear Mark Emmons and Cheryl Middleton discuss their platforms and vision for ACRL. Emmons is associate dean of public services at the University of New Mexico, and Middleton is associate university librarian for learning and engagement at Oregon State University Libraries & Press. This online forum is an opportunity for ACRL members to ask questions of the two candidates.

Access to the forum will be available approximately 15 minutes before the start time through Adobe Connect. Audio archives of the candidates answering prepared questions will also be available on ACRL Insider a few days before the forum.

More information on the 2016 ACRL election, including links to candidate statements from C&RL News and a full slate of candidates for ACRL section offices, is available on the ACRL website.
