The 2022 Fall Forum is going to be too good to miss!  We’re extending the deadlines for registration and hotel reservations for the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) 2022 Fall Forum. The theme of this year’s Fall Forum—to be held on Thursday, October 20, in Washington, DC, and online—is “Supporting Mental and Emotional Health for Ourselves and Others.”

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.
