AASL 2007 Meeting in Philadelphia
The Association of Architecture School Librarians (AASL) met March 8-10 in Philadelphia, PA, while the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) concurrently held their annual conference. AASL meeting attendees (among them many Architecture Section members) attended informative sessions including "Instruction in Support of Architecture Programs," "Architectural Archives and Special Collections," and "Building Collaborative Digital Collections." Attendees also found many opportunities to meet new friends and network with colleagues from libraries near and far.
In addition to tours of the Fisher Fine Arts Library and the University of Pennsylvania Architectural Archives, the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, and the Carpenter's Company Library, attendees appreciated the chance to experience the meeting rooms and accommodations in the conference hotel in Philadelphia's sleek, jazz-age skyscraper, the PSFS Building by Howe and Lescaze (1929-1932). Martin Aurand, (Carnegie Mellon University), planned the AASL meetings and events in his role as AASL vice-president/president-elect and successfully instilled his affection for Philadelphia in the assembled AASL members. Next year the AASL, and the ACSA, meet in Houston, TX.
