Call for proposals for

IFLA SLRC / IASL 2011 Joint Pre-conference Meeting 
in collaboration with LIAJA on
“School Libraries: Best Practices for e-Learning”
Mona Campus of the University of West Indies
Kingston, Jamaica, Friday, August 5, 2011.


The IFLA School Libraries Section and the IASL, in collaboration with the LIAJA, invite you to submit a proposal for a Joint Pre-Conference Meeting to be held in Kingston, Jamaica on August 5, 2011. E-learning offers an engaging way to participate in education and training courses in the field of school librarianship, to learn the fundamentals or to specialize on a particular topic. E-learning also can be an effective and valuable way to implement the information and media literacy programme set up by the school librarian, according to the school curriculum, in order to enable students to acquire new key competencies. Innovative and effective e-learning-based school library programs throughout the world will be showcased after an opening plenary keynote session. Four to six research/professional paper proposals will be chosen for 20 minute presentations. All proposals are expected to be based on sound theory, research, and/or practical applications. Presenters may wish to bring visual aids such as posters, flyers, or brochures. The selected contributions will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
