The ACI Information Group will be exhibiting the ACI Scholarly Blog Index in Booth #1142 at the 2017 American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta, GA.  The exhibit dates are Friday, January 20th through Monday, January 23rd, 2017 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.   Aura Novembre, Vice President, and Pat Sabosik, General Manager, are looking forward to meeting customers and showcasing ACI’s award-winning scholarly blog collection.

The American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting is one of two annual business meetings of the Association.  During the 2017 Midwinter Meeting, the Association will present a Symposium on the Future of Libraries in three plenary sessions in addition to committee meetings and the exhibits.

The ACI Scholarly Blog Index, an editorially selected and curated collection of scholarly blogs written by leading academics and researchers worldwide, now includes more than 11,000 blogs and over two million blog posts covering all academic subject areas. ACI Scholarly Blog Index has been selected as one of Choice’s Outstanding Academic Titles for 2016.  

ACI Information Group has published a new booklet of scholarly blogs to showcase the depth of scholarship included in the collection.  For this year’s conference, the ACI Annual Blog Review: Science 2016 and ACI Annual Blog Review: Law 2016 will be featured along with ongoing demonstrations of the ACI Scholarly Blog Index database. 

All blogs indexed in ACI Scholarly Blog Index are individually curated by researchers with expertise in that blog’s topic or field of study, giving students, faculty, and librarians access to the highest-quality content available in selected scholarly blogs—credentialed and authoritative social media. From citation and export options to tools for bookmarks, lists, and features for sharing & collaborations, librarians are using ACI to help their online researchers find quality academic and research blogs.
