call for conference papers

Call for Papers: Academic Librarian 2: Singing in the Rain Conference Towards Future Possibilities (11-12 March 2010), Hong Kong
Deadline for Abstract Submission: 16 October 2009
About the Conference
Academic Librarians face unprecedented challenges to their role, to how they manage their collections and how they interact professionally with their academic colleagues. They require different professional and personal skills as well as different ways of interacting with their communities, both in the academic, publishing and other vendor communities. In the current context of a global recession, without doubt, it is going to be a future full of challenges and opportunities. What has changed and what needs to change? As suggested by the Conference subtitle "Singing in the Rain", a new generation of academic librarians cannot survive without an optimistic, positive and thoughtful attitude towards the future.
