Established in January 1979, the Association of Architecture School Librarians (AASL) is a group of librarians dedicated to architectural librarianship. Our vision is to advance and enrich architectural education through librarianship. AASL members meet annually, often in conjunction with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). Topics of conference sessions have included collection development, user education, image retrieval, Internet resources, special collections, electronic databases, the library's role in architecture school accreditation, and the acquisition of local architectural information. We value our roles as advocates and educators and we strive to build community and foster growth among our members.
