Information is like the air we breathe: it touches all aspects of our lives. Information science explores how information and information systems work in our world. Information science researchers investigate questions about how information is created, organized, described, conceptualized, shared, and used. These inquiries tell us about the role that information plays in our lives, including our communities, schools, and workplaces. For nearly fifty years, the Canadian Association for Information Science has been devoted to the advancement of information science in Canada. Among its membership and to the broader community we seek to encourage and facilitate the exchange of information relating to the use, access, retrieval, organization, management, and dissemination of information. The association brings together information scientists, librarians, archivists, computer scientists, documentalists, economists, educators, journalists, psychologists, and others interested in information. Our 2019 theme, "Information studies in the world: Conversations across institutional boundaries," invites explorations of how information travels between contexts and the relationships between our discipline and daily experience. Our 2019 conference will include compelling examinations of information in society, scholarship, and our everyday lives.
