The ALISE 2020 Annual Conference has moved from the City of Bridges to online. The conference and associated meetings will be held virtually over several weeks from October 14 – 22.  Attendees will explore the interconnected world of library and information sciences, archives, knowledge management, information management, media studies, informatics, data science, computer science, and communications.  Details will be shared in the coming weeks.  We’ll “see” you online in October!

Transforming LIS Education in an Interconnected World

Library and information science (LIS) education continues to be transformed by technological advances, international trends, and expanded interconnectedness, both local and global. "Change" has become a buzzword but also a constant reality. Our social settings, educational environments, and workplaces are fluid and fast-paced. In an era shaped by the continuing evolution of the information landscape, ALISE '20 will focus on the challenges and opportunities these transformations present to LIS educators in terms of institutional narratives, sustainability, and the positioning of LIS as an increasingly interdisciplinary field.

LIS education is affected by growing diversity, the pervasive culture of metrics and performance indicators, widespread misinformation campaigns, the need to project clear institutional images, the imperative of the public good and sustainability, and the need to prove the value of higher education and professional activities to community stakeholders, professional collaborators, and funding agencies. These trends present an auspicious field of activity to LIS educators, students, and researchers but also challenge them to stay relevant, creative, up-to-date, responsive to change, and proactive for the future. The ALISE 2020 Annual Conference invites participants to engage with these notions of change and all aspects of the transformation of LIS education.
