The ACRL Arts Section is seeking contributors to the Philadelphia ArtsGuide for the upcoming 2011 ACRL Conference, March 30-April 2.

The ArtsGuide is a semi-annual guide and customized Google Map developed by members and associates of ACRL’s Arts Section to help conference attendees find arts-related venues and events in and around host cities.

This is a great opportunity to get involved in the ACRL Arts Section. It’s also a fun way to contribute your knowledge of the area to enhance everyone’s conference experience!

You can view previous ArtsGuides on the ACRL Arts Section page at:
http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/about/sections/arts/artsguide/artsguides.cfm

If you are interested in contributing to ArtsGuide sections on Visual Arts & Museums, Galleries, Architecture, Theatre, Music, and/or Dance please contact the editor of this year’s ACRL ArtsGuide, Eamon Tewell, at eamont(at)gmail(dot)com as soon as possible.

Both ACRL members and non-members are encouraged to contribute.
Submissions would be due by February 18, 2011.
