Information leadership in a culture of change.

Information leadership in a culture of change.

November 15 is fast approaching and we wouldn't want anyone to miss the
opportunity to submit a paper for the International Association of
School Librarianship (IASL) conference in Hong Kong in July 2005 which
also incorporates a workshop day for the International Baccalaurete Pan
Asia Library Media Specialists (IB PALMS).

If you are thinking of attending, why not think about presenting a paper?
All you need is passion and and a willingness to share what you are doing
in your part of the world so that others can learn from your
experiences. Have you tried something lately and it worked? Have you
incorporated ICT into your teaching and been successful? - or not? Have
you had great experiences and fun using a new piece of equipment or
software in your school? What about reading levels and how it influences
your work practises with ICT? Have you increased reading levels in your
school using ICT - what about AR? Book raps? Some people have never
heard of these innovations so what were your experiences? Lead a
discussion or workshop on how you think ICT has changed the way school
librarians' work and its influence on how students learn or use the
facilities. Do you have a Principal who would like to attend with you to
give a presentation on how they support the library and their way of
doing this?

Presentations needn't just be from the university
researchers - think how it would look on your resume! Presentations can
be just 45 minutes in length with 15 minutes discussion time - easy
enough! You have the added incentive to be rewarded with a complementary
harbour cruise with dinner on the fabulous Victoria Harbour to truly
savour the Hong Kong atmosphere.

The conference venue is the Hong Kong University with cutting edge
technology available for your use in your professional paper,
demonstration, workshop, research paper or poster session, so there are
no physical limits to what you can share!

If you think you could be up to it - send a short email to Sandra Lee
at  to let her know of your intentions to submit a
proposal - then visit the conference website to see the guidelines and put a proposal together.

If you would like this conference to be useful at the grassroots level,
we need people at the grassroots level to present!
