Revised Call for Participation: Satellite Meeting of the IFLA Regional Standing Committee for Asia and Oceania
[Revised Call with Deadline extended to: 21 March 2016]
Access to Information in Small Island Developing States
Friday, 12 August 2016
IFLA Regional Standing Committee for Asia and Oceania in collaboration with ALA International Relations Round Table (IRRT) and the local Organising Committee with representatives from the Columbus College of Art and Design and the Columbus Metropolitan Library.
The organisers invite you to participate in this event, simply by attending, or also by presenting a case study or introducing a topic (see Topics below). If you wish to submit a proposal for a presentation then note the deadlines. The satellite pre-conference theme is closely linked to the theme of the RSCAO open session during the programme of the main Congress (WLIC) of 'Access to Information for Sustainable Communities'. There is also close alignment with the recently released Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, and IFLA’s Strategic Directions and Key Initiatives of ‘Libraries in Society’ and ‘Capacity Building’.
Full call for papers with details is available on the WLIC 2016 website.
