We often talk at conferences about projects that went well. In contrast, we rarely discuss initiatives that failed, or unexpected obstacles that forced us to find another route to success. In our 2018 Annual Conference, the ACRL New England chapter is highlighting experimentation and creativity in college and research libraries by acknowledging that missteps and roadblocks are all part of the process. Join us in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in May 2018 to talk about “failing forward.”

We want to hear about your innovative ideas that went bust; your project development blunders; your event planning faux pas! Tell us how failure has helped you and your library to learn and grow. Give us insight into the missteps that have led you to unanticipated success. How has expanding your capacity for failure helped you to take risks and experience breakthroughs?

Staff, faculty, administrators, and students in all areas of librarianship are encouraged to submit proposals by January 19, 2018.

See the full call for proposals, including session formats, submission requirements, and the link to submit a proposal, on the conference website: https://acrlnec.org/annual-conference/call-for-proposals
