The President of the Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL), Prof. Carmen Margarita Santos-Corrada, invites proposals for Papers workshops  and Poster presentations at ACURIL XL to be held from June 6-12, at the InterContinental V Centenario Hotel.

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

Conscious of the need that librarians and other information professionals have to propitiate proactive changes to build up better practices in our field, to contribute to the study and research endeavors of our diverse communities, to the sustainability of our countries, and to be part of  the global and competitive world we live in, the theme  Innovation and Informational Impact in the Caribbean: Evidence-Based Practice of the Library and Information Professional has been selected.

At 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 intelligent organizations using the evidence-based practice focus, for the benefit of the diverse communities that we serve.  It is intended to be a forum for colleagues to share ideas, innovative developments and proactive solutions to the issues and challenges we face as information professionals in our developing Caribbean region, operating in a world of continuous change.

The 40th ACURIL Conference program is being designed so that attendees can acquire the new knowledge and professional skills of the EBLIP, consider and share the experience, reflect on how to integrate the evidence-based process into the particular daily work,  and be able to document the process and disseminate and share the experience with other colleagues.

Papers, Workshops and Posters presentations proposals may be practical or theoretical. To effectively explore the conference theme Innovation and Informational Impact in the Caribbean: Evidence-Based Practice of the Library and Information Professional, six broad subject areas have been chosen as sub-themes for ACURIL 2010.

The Conference Sub-Themes are:

  • Administration of Information Services
  • Multitype Collection Development
  • Information Organization and Representation
  • Reference and Information User Services
  • Information and Research Competencies
  • Information and Innovational Impact: Assessment of the Evidence-Based Practice

In addition, presenters are encouraged to relate their papers to the content area groups of ACURIL, namely Agriculture and the Environment, Health, Medicine and Natural Sciences, Organization and Retrieval of Information, and Law.

Do dot miss this important event.  We are All Acurileans, Join Us…
