Library professionals, academics, researchers, authors, teachers and students with an interest in discussing and learning more about the vital role libraries play in schools and the broader community will gather to attend the second International Library Symposium on Queensland’s Gold Coast in September, 2016. This event will provide delegates with a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas, share and understand common ground and hear presentations from an impressive range of nationally and internationally renowned keynote speakers.
Symposium Theme: Space and Place, Power and Purpose
The library profession is one of the most dynamic components of modern education. The continuing development of ICT resources and pedagogical practices, as witnessed globally throughout learning and teaching institutions, highlights a variety of complex challenges within the library profession. Librarians and teachers who endeavour to endorse their professional standing and intellectual credibility are not only obliged to reassess and augment their services, but recreate their physical ‘space and place’ as a means of affirming their academic and cultural ‘power and purpose’.
The International Library Symposium will feature a series of keynote presentations from nationally and internationally recognised social commentators, authors, creators and educators. The program includes extensive networking opportunities for delegates, a range of social events and a Trade Exhibition.
Symposium Trade Exhibition involvement is available. Please contact the Symposium Director for further details.
