Sponsorship Opportunities

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.

As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, RBMS is prioritizing creating meaningful experiences for our sponsors with less physical output. If you have new ideas, please reach out. We’d love to work with you. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Verónica Reyes-Escudero, Chair of RBMS.
