Our theme this year is Identity Imperative: we will explore the roles we construct as information professionals associated with architecture and its related fields. We seek to understand ourselves as members of the information profession, members of AASL, and participants of our local communities of practice, education, and cultural institutions. What opportunities and challenges do we share with other information professionals? What is unique to us? And how have our individual and institutional experiences shaped how we craft our identities? This focus on Identity Imperative is fitting as AASL approaches its 40th anniversary. We will try to answer these questions and plan for our future through a Strategic Planning Session, tours, and various opportunities to present the work we do.
