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 Fostering East Asian Librarianship (FEAL) grant, awarded to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, was funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services in June of 2013. FEAL seeks to create highly qualified library in the area of East Asian Librarianship through education, employment, mentoring, and professional development. Ten students began the online MLIS at SOIS spring semester of 2014, with an eleventh joining in Spring of 2015. The grant provides tuition, fees, travel, and conference expenses to eleven students fluent in one or more East Asian languages who are employed at institutions housing substantial East Asian collections that employ a full-time East Asian librarian.
