The gathering is to celebrate three great ASIS&T awards!

2011 Chapter of the Year Award
NEASIST received this ASIS&T honor for hosting a number of well-attended events including book clubs, social events, and presentations, and for engaging in outreach activities  targeted at members and non-members alike.

2011 Chapter Innovation of the Year
NEASIST received this honor for our meet-up, “All Things e-Readers.” We gathered to share experiences of reading on Kindle, iPads, Nooks, smart phones, and other devices; and shared ideas on how to negotiate licenses, catalog books on Kindle, and manage patron expectation for using devices and accessing material.

Congratulations also to the Simmons GSLIS ASIS&T chapter for winning the Student Chapter of the Year Award! Simmons ASIS&T had a very successful year, hosting a number of heavily attended events, with some well known names, including Peter Suber and Nicole Hennig.
