What Does AIRS Do

 

AIRS provides its members with opportunities for professional development and for interacting with people who have similar professional interests or information needs:

  • Two professional learning opportunities are held each year, one in the fall and one in the spring.
  • In addition, informal meetings are held on an ad hoc basis to deal with topical issues.

Special Interest Group workshops and seminars are periodically sponsored by AIRS on topics of significance to our membership.
