The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) will hold its 50th annual conferencePast Present Future: Aspiring to New Heights in Chicago, IL, April 5th to 9th, 2022. 

As the Art Libraries Society of North America celebrates its golden anniversary, the conference theme underscores the history of art librarianship, focuses on the current emergence of new technologies and modes of interaction, and provides an opportunity to consider how the events of the past two years may impact the future.  It also reflects Chicago’s own story, from the resiliency and optimism that allowed Chicago to reinvent itself as a modern city after the Great Fire, to its development as a city of dynamic diversity where issues of equity, inclusion, accessibility and anti-racism are of paramount importance.
