ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

The Institute of Research Design for Librarianship (IRDL) is a federally funded program that provides professional development opportunities and a support system for academic librarians to improve their research skills and research output. A study is being conducted to examine how the IRDL participants stay connected and provide support for each other in their research activities via online venues. The study seeks to develop an online peer support model that could inform the design of online training programs on research methods for LIS professionals, and the establishment of an active online community about LIS practitioner research.
