Calling All Instruction Librarians: What Keeps You (and Your Colleagues) Up at Night?

Plus: Launching the New METRO Library Instruction Meetup in the New METRO Space!

Join us for an exciting and productive 2-part event.

First, we will explore the new METRO presentation, workshop, and studio facilities, and discuss the opportunities afforded to build our community and learn together. In addition to a larger and better equipped workshop space, there are smaller meeting rooms, informal gathering spaces, and a studio where METRO will make equipment and new technologies available for members’ use.

Next up, we will open the floor to targeted discussion: what is happening in your library and on your campus?

• Are you and your colleagues instruction collaborators or independent operators? How do you work together—or alongside one another? What works well? What not so much?

• Has there been an effort to bring the ACRL Framework into practice, and how did it go?

• If you were to articulate a personal wish list for IL on your campus, what would it include?

• What failures have you experienced? Has there been any value added in recovery from failure?

• What keeps you and your colleagues up at night? What is your deepest concern related to library instruction right now?

WHEN: Wednesday June 14, 4:30pm – 6:30pm

WHERE: METRO,[masked]th Avenue (between 44th & 45th Streets), 8th floor (directions (
