ACRL Announces “Landmark” Articles Selected to Appear in 75th Anniversary Issue of College & Research Libraries

From the Association of College & Research Libraries:

In preparation for the upcoming celebration of the Association of College and Research Libraries’ (ACRL) 75th anniversary, the editorial board of College & Research Libraries (C&RL) asked the journal’s readers to help identify seven “landmark” articles from C&RL history to be included in a special issue of the journal to be published in March 2015 and discussed at the ACRL 2015 Conference in Portland, Ore.

The following articles were selected from a list of 30 finalists identified by the editorial board and a group of past C&RL editors, as well as one ‘people’s choice’ article selected by the readership.

  • Carla J. Stoffle, Robert Renaud, and Jerilyn R. Veldof, “Choosing Our Futures,” originally published in College & Research Libraries, volume 57 (May 1996)


The editorial board is currently identifying authors for companion essays from among leading thinkers in academic libraries and LIS education aimed at illuminating the contemporary, and ongoing, significance of these works. These companion essays will be published alongside the original articles in this special issue of the journal.

Complete details on the C&RL 75th anniversary issue, along with other ACRL anniversary activities, are available on the ACRL 75th anniversary website.
