41st Annual Meeting of AASL (2019)
This year AASL borrows its theme from ACSA to ask the question: What are the challenges that information professionals specializing in Architecture and its related fields face in a post-digital era. Many of the challenges are easily identifiable - shrinking footprints, reorganizations, preservation, the digital divide, data management, digital scholarship, digital literacy, hybrid collections, re-skilling, increased responsibilities, general uncertainty - and are not limited to architecture information professionals alone. The theme challenges us to shift our thinking, to open up conversations about these topics, and to explore solutions. We have the chance to re-imagine these challenges as opportunities, creating a new core for information professionals in architecture that will help us to communicate our value to and increase our visibility among peers, administration, and our teaching faculty.
