Sponsorship allows us to create a unique conference experience. First, it helps us to develop a conference environment conducive to meaningful discourse and lively interaction. Second, it provides us with the opportunity to invite unique speakers, at the vanguard of information science and astronomy. Most importantly, sponsorship allows us to invite economically disadvantaged librarians from different parts of the world who could otherwise not attend; from past LISA conferences, we know that all attendees benefit enormously from a diverse group of participants, which ultimately, make the conference much richer. As in the past, generous donations help us continue the tradition of LISA and its role in advancing astronomy librarianship for years to come.
On behalf of the Friends of LISA, thank you to the following sponsors for helping to support LISA
