Much has happened since the current edition of this benchmark text was published in 2016. Today's LIS professionals are experiencing both excitement and trepidation as sweeping societal, technological, political, and economic changes affect our users and institutions and transform our discipline. As well, there has been a transformation in the way core courses in library and information studies are being taught, and how future--and current--professionals envision their careers in this field. The LIS profession demands constant growth, continuous learning, and open minds. We invite all interested attendees of ALISE 2018 to come to this informal session and share your thoughts with author Rick Rubin on how a new edition of Foundations can continue to help you provide students with a firm foundation of knowledge of the many facets of the discipline and its many futures.
