The Post-Conference Satellite aims to provide an overview of conceptual foundations of community-centered LIS education, reflecting IFLA  Global Vision and a paradigm shift to proactive libraries transforming communities. SET Training School addresses the knowledge and skills Library and Information Science (LIS) professionals require to take on leadership roles and to become advocates and change-makers who enrich the lives of the diverse communities they serve.
