What do six questions and fourteen years reveal about librarians? An analysis of ACRL’s Members of the Week

Mark Sanders, Michael Reece


The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) was founded in 1940 and represents more than 8,000 academic and research librarians. Since 2008, the staff-produced ACRL Insider blog has provided information on ACRL activities, services, and programs. The blog features information on publications, events, conferences, and online learning opportunities, along with podcasts and other media. A regular feature of the ACRL Insider blog is the “Member of the Week” (MOTW), a selection that has highlighted more than 650 academic librarians to present. The MOTW designation spotlights the diversity and accomplishments of the ACRL membership and serves to promote academic and research librarianship to those who may be considering academic librarianship as a career. Those profiled are primarily self-nominated, although some are occasionally selected by ACRL or nominated by a colleague. It’s a popular, easy, and effective way to virtually meet professional colleagues.
