The President of the Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL), Mme Bea Bazile, invites proposals for paper presentations at ACURIL XXXIX, to be held from June 2-5, 2009, at the Hotel Arawak. The theme of the conference is The Future of Libraries within the Framework of Sustainable Development.

This Call for Papers is open to all information specialists including, librarians, archivists, record administrators, and educators in the field of information science, as well as information providers.

During the United Nations Rio de Janeiro Conference in 1992, 180 nations showed their will to participate in a series of actions whose objective was to seek for a “sustainable development”. Still we are pursuing the same objective. This sustainable development must be able to satisfy today’s needs without compromising the capacity of future generations to meet their own.

In this conference we will seek to explore strategies and practices that will allow us to develop libraries, archives and other information units in the Caribbean region within the framework of sustainable development, for the benefit of the diverse communities that we serve. It is intended to be a forum for persons to share ideas, innovative developments and proactive solutions to the issues and challenges we face as information professionals in a developing region, operating in a world of continuous change.

Paper presentation proposals may be practical or theoretical. Presenters are encouraged to relate their papers to the content area groups of ACURIL, namely Agriculture and the Environment, Health, Medicine and Natural Sciences, Knowledge Management, Organization and Retrieval of Information, and Law.
