On behalf of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) Executive Board and the St. Louis conference planning team, I am excited to invite you to participate in the 48th Annual Conference of the Art Libraries Society of North America in St. Louis, Missouri from Monday, April 20 – Friday April 24, 2020.
Highlights of the conference include:
- The historic conference hotel The Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta St. Louis in the pedestrian-friendly Central West End and across from Forest Park.
- Art and architecture of St. Louis including the Welcome Party at the St. Louis Art Museum (SLAM) and a Closing Party at the City Museum. Our convocation is walking distance from the hotel on the Washington University School of Medicine campus and our reception will be on the breathtaking Rooftop Ballroom of the hotel.
- Tours of the Gateway Arch and the Cahokia Mounds will not disappoint.

From compelling sessions to valuable workshops to inspiring art and architecture, this will be a conference not to be missed. Enjoyable social gatherings, a mix of cultural offerings, and a vibrant and diverse city, will make for an exciting and unforgettable conference.
I look forward to seeing you!
