ACRL 1978 National Conference “New Horizons For Academic Libraries”

The Boston Public Library, just two short blocks from the Sheraton Hotel, will be the scene of a reception honoring the fortieth anniversary of ACRL and officially opening the ACRL National Conference in Boston on November 8-11, 1978. This library combines the pure elegance of an older building, erected in 1895 and now a National Historic Site and one of the fifty most important buildings in the history of American architecture, with that of a modern $22.6-million new Central Library opened in 1972.

The reception is only one of several interludes that will add to this important conference that will focus on the future prospects for academic and research librarianship in the U.S. There will be both invited and contributed papers, and the overwhelming response to the contributed paper sessions will assure that all major topics will be covered. Ample time will be provided for visiting exhibits as well as libraries and historical sites. Please reserve the dates November 8-11, 1978, now!

Registration information will be mailed later; for further information please contact Julie A. Carroll Virgo, executive secretary of ACRL, or George Parks, conference chair, at the University of Rhode Island.
