Sponsorship

The Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (RBMS) of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) plays a leading role in local, national, and international special collections communities. As an RBMS sponsor, you will have a targeted reach, measurable returns, and access to our national network of rare books and manuscripts librarians. Strengthen your ties with special collections librarians and outshine your competition by becoming an RBMS Conference Sponsor.

New this year! As part of our commitment to sustainability for this conference, we are prioritizing creating meaningful experiences for our sponsors with less physical output (see revised Benefits).  If you have new ideas, please reach out. We'd love to work with you. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Shannon K. Supple, Chair of RBMS.
