ACRL/NY Events and Jobs


The Association of Colleges and Research Libraries of the Greater New York Metropolitan Area Chapter just announced a new blog that will maintain their events and job listings. This is actually replacing their listserv. Here is the full announcement:

ACRL/NY Events and Jobs Blog Replaces ACRLNY-L Listserv

ACRLNY-L will be discontinued February 2, 2007 in listserv format and will be moving to a new blog format. The blog, ACRL/NY Events and Jobs, is located at http://acrlny.blogspot.com. The blog is hosted by the Greater New York Metropolitan Area Chapter, Association of College and Research Libraries or ACRL/NY. Brian Lym (Hunter College), Ann Grafstein (Hofstra University) and Monica Berger (NYC College of Technology) maintain this blog. Like ACRLNY-L, it is for announcements, not discussion. We will post only events and jobs that are related to academic and research libraries.

Subscribing: You have a choice of RSS subscription (look for the orange RSS button) or subscription by email. To subscribe by email, scroll down the right-hand column, below the index and RSS feed button. There is a form where you can enter your email address. You will receive postings once a day if you subscribe by email.

Submitting events and jobs: Submit events and jobs to acrlny@gmail.com.

Great new features of the blog: ACRL/NY Events and Jobs offers:

  1. Browsing by category or geographical location *Search bar located in the navigation bar at the top of the page *Permanent and concise archives (All postings to ACRLNY-L after Oct. 25, 2006 are archived on the blog)
  2. Links to websites listing other events.
  3. Lisjobs.com library job postings feed directly into the bottom-most part of the blog

Thanks to ACRLNY-L moderators: Special thanks to Emily McElroy, the current listserv moderator, as well as our previous moderators, Nadaleen Tempelman-Kluit, and Gloria Rohmann, all of NYU.
