The New Jersey Chapter of the Association of College & Research Libraries, also the College and University Section of the New Jersey Library Association, works to enhance the effectiveness of academic and research librarians. We provide opportunities for professional development, continuing education, and networking. There are a number of active committees covering a wide range of library interests allowing librarians to tailor their involvement to their own professional and personal interests.

Getting to know:
Now is the time to start brainstorming articles for the Fall 2015 newsletter of the NJLA College and University Section/ACRL-NJ Chapter! The newsletter is a great way for you share news about your library and library staff with academic librarians all over New Jersey. Let your colleagues know about grants you’ve won, exciting new collections or programming, library construction or new technologies that your library is pioneering.
To get you brainstorming ideas, we’ve created a theme for the Fall 2015 edition; “Implementing the New ACRL Information Literacy Framework.” Please let us know how you and your library are using the new framework. Tell us what works and what doesn’t, how you assess it, best practices, and more.
Of course, we are still interested in all aspects of the NJ Academic library world, including:
Photographs, images, and videos are especially encouraged.
Articles should be 1000 words or less, and photographs and images should be attached separately.
Deadline for submissions is MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2015. The newsletter will be distributed on November 23rd. With each article submission, please include the author’s email address so that readers can easily contact authors, and an author photo.
Here is where you can find past issues of the newsletter, in case you would like an idea of what to submit:
