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.

Changes in the operating environment of information professionals have significant implications for library and information science education. The current situation requires more than the tinkering, quick fixes, and incremental changes that have generally typified the evolution of professional education. Academic programs must respond to emerging trends in the field, consider innovative thinking and ideas advanced by researchers and practitioners, and anticipate new models of service delivery. Professional education needs to embody and enact the concepts and principles that are gaining traction in all sectors of our profession. The information curriculum thus needs to be blended, integrated, embedded, collaborative, and participatory.
