The field of library science is always changing. Even professional library organizationshave conducted studies about changing the name of the profession. All of the attendees of the LISA meeting are involved in Library and Information Sciences in Astronomy and we represent a number of different organizations and professions. In crafting a white paper about the profession, an ethnographic study of the field was proposed with the research reported on at the LISA meeting. The research methods include an online survey and in person interviews with various members of the community. We hope to identify trends, differences and a road map for the future.
