An informal gathering among faculty, librarians and archivists of The New School who will address how notions of institutional memory and identity are created through libraries and archives. Examining the way bodies of knowledge are structured and organized, the participants will also explore possibilities for the future of information science, and consider how the social production of knowledge contributes to identity – on both the level of the individual, and in society at large.
