The organising committee invites proposals for papers, research reports, interactive roundtable discussions, and workshops. It also welcomes proposals to tell personal stories.
The objective of the event is to showcase examples of best practices for forging a vibrant library work force. The committee is interested in exploring how individual librarians have successfully managed their careers by embracing change, professional development, and training or by providing professional development opportunities for others. The organisers want to examine how enhanced library skills contribute to stronger libraries.
They are interested in these issues as they cut across a variety of organizational structures, library types, different cultures and geographical regions. The organisers would like to feature a diversity of voices.
