In 2020, the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois will celebrate 40 years of resource sharing through CARLI and its predecessor organizations. To commemorate and celebrate this important anniversary, CARLI is hosting a reception at the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago Stock Exchange Trading Room, Sunday, June 28, 2020, 4-6 p.m., during the American Library Association Annual Conference. We are expecting 300 attendees. Sponsorships will offset costs related to the event.

In addition to our celebration, we are kicking off the new CARLI Scholarship campaign. The scholarship will assist CARLI libraries’ staff members who are pursuing their MS in Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s iSchool. The June 28, 2020, Chicago event will promote the scholarship and our fundraising efforts.

The CARLI 40th Anniverary Celebration is made possible with significant support from the Art Institute of Chicago and EBSCO. Other sponsors include Ex Libris, Project Muse, ​Blooomsbury Digital Resources, Wiley, and LIBRAS.
