The iFederation is a joint initiative between ASIS&T, ALISE, and the iSchools to mutually cooperate and promote information science and related disciplines. During this panel session, each of the three partner organizations within the iFederation will describe their own association’s strategic directions and their views on how they envision themselves mutually cooperating and promoting information science with the other two iFederation associations. The panel will start with a quick overview of the current Memorandum of Understanding signed between the three founding iFederation associations, followed by a short overview of each association’s strategic plans and ideas for iFederation collaborations. This will be followed by a lengthy discussion with audience attendees in regards to their perspectives on how best to move the iFederation forward in a way that is mutually beneficial to all.
