The National Council for Learning Resources (NCLR) is your voice in the American Association of Community Colleges. This is the only official representation of libraries and learning resources in the AACC organization.

NCLR is composed of library/learning resource leaders who have an interest in the mission and future directions of learning resources programs nationwide.

Your personal or institutional membership is needed to support the purposes of NCLR:

  • To provide a member forum and voice within AACC for learning resources topics and concerns
  • To highlight exemplary practices in learning resources programs at the AACC Annual Conference
  • To direct programming toward community college administrators and faculty.
  • To address the concerns of our profession to the faculty and administrators of our colleges

NCLR business is conducted primarily through mailings, phone calls, and email. Meeting attendance is not required; only officers attend AACC meetings. The program we sponsor at the AACC conference is designed primarily for the executive administrators of our colleges. NCLR also communicates via reports and conference updates with our affiliate members of the Community and Junior College Library Section (CJCLS) of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), a division of the American Library Association.

Your personal or institutional membership to NCLR provides a voice in the only professional library organization which speaks directly to key administrators in two-year colleges. Your support enables NCLR to have an impact on the way learning resources programs are viewed and funded on the national level.
