The ARL Fall Forum will be offered Thursday, October 20, 2022, in both in-person and virtual formats at The Dupont Circle Hotel, located at 1500 New Hampshire Ave NW, Washington, DC 20036. The Fall Forum will take place 8:30 a.m.–6:00 p.m. EDT for in-person attendees and noon–6:00 p.m. for virtual attendees. The morning includes a workshop focused on mindfulness.  

For many, pandemic uncertainties and operational-level decision-making have been constant and preoccupying, and the ongoing pressure has taken a toll on our mental health. In these circumstances, how do we preserve our own mental health as leaders while also looking out for our teams and the communities we serve? The focus at the 2022 Fall Forum will provide an opportunity for a strategic discussion on mental health in a pandemic-informed environment. 

At this public, hybrid event, you will hear from experts, scholars, and leading innovators about mental health with a focus on the workplace, the community, students, and equity-deserving groups. This event will provide insight into how we can shape practices and programs that support various aspects of mental health in a research library environment. We hope participants will be inspired to consider how an emphasis on balance and wellness can transform our institutions and support the long-term success of our teams and leaders.

Our partners at EBSCO Information Services will host a Fall Forum Reception for in-person attendees on the evening of Wednesday, October 19, 6:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m. All registered in-person attendees are cordially invited to attend.

EBSCO Information Services is the leading provider of research databases, e-journal and e-package subscription management, book collection development and acquisition management, and a major provider of library technology, e-books and clinical decision solutions for universities, colleges, hospitals, corporations, government, K12 schools and public libraries worldwide.
