Space Availability - ACRL Zoom


ACRL Virtual Meeting Information
As an organization, we understand the importance of having various tools available to meet and work on ACRL initiatives throughout the year, and we’re committed to making the overall virtual meeting process smooth for you. Whether you need to request a room for a large discussion forum or a mid-size committee meeting, we're here to assist you with those requests. However, due to the increasing demand for meeting space from our 300+ groups, we encourage you to please consider using your own virtual meeting software for smaller meetings less than one hour. You might want to look into obtaining a free Zoom account or a Free Conference Call account.

We understand how important it is to stay current with accessibility practices. In addition to the resources below, we would like to make you aware of this useful feature in Zoom.  Zoom has live transcription. If you need to have this feature turned on for your virtual meeting, simply say yes to the Live Caption question when you make your virtual meeting request.


ACRL offers its committees and communities of practice groups the use of virtual meeting software for Zoom Meeting (up to 300 attendees) and Zoom Web (up to 999 attendees). Before scheduling your session, we encourage you to review the following resources:

We believe these resources will be beneficial to you in preparation for your meetings and discussion forums.
