FLORENCE, Ala.-Librarians from all across the Southeast will soon be headed to the University of North Alabama to attend the Association of College and Research Libraries' (ACRL) workshop May 16, 2019.

UNA's Collier Library has been selected by ACRL to host the "Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement" Roadshow workshop this spring.

ACRL is the largest division of the American Library Association. Founded with the belief that librarians lead change across campuses, ACRL is dedicated to the advancement of academic libraries and their role within collegiate communities.

The "Scholarly Communication" Roadshow is designed to help libraries advance themselves and accelerate the scholarly communication system.
