[InetBib] OT: CfP IFLA Education & Training Section

Liebe Kollegen,
hiermit leite ich den CfP der IFLA SET Section für die IFLA Konferenz in 
Göteborg an Sie weiter.
Mit freundlichem Gruß
Petra Hauke

76th IFLA General Conference & Council, Gothenburg, Sweden, August 10-15, 2010

Call for papers 

New digital directions and library education:  sustaining library
education programs.

Colleagues from around the world are invited to submit an abstract for
consideration for the SET Open Session.   

The IFLA Section for Education and Training (SET) seeks papers for its
Open Session on the topic New digital directions and library
education: sustaining library education  programs. This topic has been
chosen in accordance with the main theme of the conference, Open access
to knowledge: promoting sustainable progress.  A separate call for
papers has been issued for the Section's satellite session and for a
joint SET session with the IFLA E-learning special interest group on
Understanding the value of ePortfolios to reflect on and present
learning and professional development.  

We are particularly keen to have papers and perspectives from LIS
educators, practitioners and students and from a wide range of library
sectors (e.g. public, academic, school, special).  Papers must be
original and could cover issues like:   

*        The impact of new information technologies : reconceptualizing,
and/or globalizing library education?
*        Library education in iSchools
*        Pedagogy for online/virtual library education and training
*        Employability of graduates in the digital library world.
*        Interdisciplinarity, synergies and/or convergences of digital
archives, libraries and museums in library education.

 Language of the session: The paper should be in one of the IFLA official
languages. It is hoped that simultaneous interpretation will be
available for this session, but we strongly recommend that the
presentation slides are in English, even if the presentation is
delivered in one of the other official languages.

Important dates and information:  Proposals for papers must be submitted
by: 31 December  2009. The proposal should clearly indicate the session
it is for and include a title, an abstract of no more than 300 words,
plus a brief speaker biography. All proposals will be evaluated by a
refereeing committee representing the IFLA Section of Education and
Training: Dr. Gillian Hallam, Professor S.B. Ghosh, Mouna Benslimane,
Mai Poldaas, Chihfeng Lin, Dr. Kerry Smith.  Please email your proposals
to: Dr Kerry Smith (Australia), k.smith@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 
Successful candidates will be notified by 28 February 2010 and must
supply the full paper by 16 April 2010  to allow time for the review of
papers and preparation of translations.  Details on the format and
length of the final paper will be emailed to those candidates whose
abstracts are accepted. 
At least one of the paper's authors must undertake to be present to
deliver a summary of the paper during the Section's programme in
Gothenburg.  PLEASE NOTE that the Section for Education and Training has
no funds to assist prospective authors; abstracts should only be
submitted on the understanding that the expenses of attending the
Gothenburg conference (including travel, expenses and conference fee)
will be the responsibility of the author(s)/presenter(s) of accepted
papers. Some national professional associations may be able to help fund
certain expenses, and a small number of grants for conference attendance
may be available at: http://www.ifla.org/III/members/grants.htm
