Call for Papers - Singapore 2013
The IFLA School Library and Information Literacy Sections are seeking proposals for a joint programme to be held at the IFLA Conference in Singapore in August 2013.
Theme: School Libraries and Information for Civic Literacies
Information literacy covers a broad spectrum of literacies required for success in the 21st century. Of the multiple literacies encountered, there is the essential challenge of developing literate citizens who are equipped to participate and contribute to the local and broader community. The program will present papers that address this challenge through school libraries and collaborators with school libraries, such as public libraries, university libraries, community entities, government agencies etc.
Papers can be written and given in any of the official IFLA languages: English, French, German, Russian, Spanish. However, abstracts should be submitted in English.
Proposals for School Libraries and Information for Civic Literacy Papers must be submitted by December 31, 2012, must be in English. The full call for papers is available on the IFLA WLIC 2013 Singapore website.
