What are your favorite art places in Boston? The ACRL Arts Section is seeking contributors to the Boston ArtsGuide for the upcoming 2016 ALA Midwinter Meeting.
The ArtsGuide is a semi-annual guide. This edition will be produced in the form of customized Google Map developed by the ACRL Arts Section’s Publications & Research Committee to help ALA conference attendees find arts-related venues and events in and around host cities.
It’s a great opportunity to get involved with the ACRL Arts Section! It’s also a fun way to contribute your knowledge of the area to enhance everyone’s conference experience. Both ACRL members and non-members are welcome to contribute.
You can see previous ArtsGuides here.
Please use our online submission form: http://goo.gl/forms/lIxvkOKvzc
to add content to our sections: Visual Arts & Museums, Architecture, Dance, Theatre, Music, Film.
Submissions are due by December 11, 2015.
