Resource of the Week – ACRL Professional Tools

It doesn’t look like much, but the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Professional Tools page leads to a lot of valuable information for anyone working in academic libraries. 

You can use the site as an introduction or overview of ACRL, exploring the diversity and opportunities of the Association ( AzLA’s CULD is a recognized Chapter of ACRL).

You can also home in on practical information like Standards or Toolkits that have been devised to guide you through common issues in academic libraries and provide examples of best practices devised by colleagues who have faced similar challenges before you.

And you can network and expand your knowledge and experience by connecting with colleagues through publications, conferences, and social media. 

There is a lot of information and opportunity out there if you know where to look.  The ACRL Professional Tools page is a good place to start.
