On April 15, 2016, the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) held a regional meeting at Rutgers University’s Alexander Library and the School of Communication and Information (SC&I). The full-day program (https://www.asist.org/events/asist-regional-meeting-2016-rutgers-university/) included a creativity workshop, a panel on library as community, as well as a panel on wearable technology.

The speakers/organizers/panelists and dignitaries included ASIS&T president Nadia Caidi, Chapter Director Chirag Shah, immediate Past Chapter Director Michael Leach, Denise Agosto (Drexel University), Adriana Blancarte-Hayward (New York Public Library), Fred Gitner (Queens Library), Vivek Singh (Rutgers University), and SIG KM Chair Tricia Bradshaw.

The participants were from academia (students, faculty) as well as practice (libraries, other companies).

A report on this event, along with links to some of the videos from the sessions, can be found at http://www.asis.org/Chapters/nj/association-for-information-science-and-technology-regional-meeting/.

We are thankful to ASIS&T headquarters as well as Rutgers University for providing support (personnel, facilities, funds) that made this event possible.
