On 30th November 2016 Edinburgh Napier University hosted the 2016 Annual Lecture of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIST). The speaker was Professor Steve Fuller of the University of Warwick. His lecture was entitled 'What, if anything, makes knowledge an improvement over information?'

Professor Hazel Hall introduced the speaker, and Dr Diane Pennington of Strathclyde University, and Chair-elect of ASIST Europe, chaired the Q&A and gave the vote of thanks.

Kirsty Pitkin of TConsult Ltd provided event amplification for the evening. She broadcast the lecture live over Periscope and also recorded it for the Edinburgh Napier YouTube channel. Afterwards she created a Storify using some of the tweets around the event (tagged #ASIST_AL16), and produced the basis of the summary of Fuller’s key arguments.
