Setting in Motion a New Century of Leadership: ALISE Strategic Directions, 2014-2017
The Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE) stands at the threshold of a new century as an association, aiming to be a global leader. At its 2015 conference, ALISE will celebrate 100 years as a vibrant professional association, which began as the Association of American Library Schools. The current name was adopted in 1983. In its continued pursuit of excellence and leadership in library and information science education and scholarship, ALISE will be guided by a new strategic plan, covering the years 2014 to 2017. During 2013 the ALISE Board gathered membership input, and conducted external and internal scans in order to develop its strategic plan for the next three years. See the link below for the draft for ALISE members to review and discuss. Please provide input on the ALISE Community Discussion Board, under the General Discussion topic at http://alise.boardhost.com/. Please feel free to join us at a town hall meeting on Thursday, January 23, 2014; 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. during the 2014 ALISE Conference.
