ACRL…Keeping Up With … Mindfulness by Julie Artman

Mindfulness has become the de rigueur everywhere you look, including academic libraries. At its core and quite simply, mindfulness is being present and aware moment to moment with ease. What does it mean for librarians and why should we consider its positive transformative potential?

Keeping Up With… is an online current awareness publication from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) featuring concise briefs on trends in academic librarianship and higher education. Each edition focuses on a single issue including an introduction to the topic and summaries of key points, including implications for academic libraries.

Each issue of Keeping Up With... is send via email to ACRL members. Non-members can visit our email subscription page to sign up to receive Keeping Up With… and a variety of other ACRL awareness publications including the ACRL Update newsletter and table of contents alerts for C&RL and C&RL News.
