The Acquisitions Institute at Timberline Lodge

The next Acquisitions Institute, our 20th(!), will be held at the Timberline Lodge,

Saturday, May 16 – Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

The call for proposals is now closed, but keep an eye on this space in early February for a link to register.

The Acquisitions Institute at Timberline Lodge has been providing a unique opportunity for acquisitions and collection development librarians, vendors and publishers to meet and discuss pertinent trends and issues in libraries since 2000.

The Timberline Lodge conference facility offers a relaxed atmosphere for librarians, vendors, and publishers to discuss issues of concern. Plan to come and listen to one another in this intimate, single-track conference (enrollment is limited to 85) with its rustic resort setting and the finest of people and conversations. Presenters are encouraged to engage the audience and there are plenty of opportunities for informal discussion outside the scheduled program. Plan to enjoy the good food, the beautiful mountain scenery, snow sports and swimming, and favorite readings. Explore the Timberline Lodge web site for a sense of the historic character of the lodge.
