The theme of the satellite conference is: The Road to Information Literacy:
Librarians as Facilitators of Learning.
The IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section
(CPDWL) and the IFLA Information Literacy Section (IL) invite proposals for

First-time presenters and new professionals are encouraged to apply. Students

All proposals must be submitted by November 9, 2011 to
Conference Theme and Focus
We are interested in exploring issues such as: how to provide professional
development to librarians in all types of libraries so they can help their user
communities become information literate; tools to support and promote
information literacy; information literacy in a work context; and the
importance of the information literacy concept to the role of
library/information professionals regardless of type of information
We are interested in these issues as they cut across a variety of
organizational structures, library types, different cultures and geographical
regions. We encourage a diversity of voices.
The conference organizing committee wishes to showcase examples of best
practices in strategies for developing a library work force that uses
information literacy skills, both through research based scholarly
presentations and experiential and practical stories of successes and lessons
learned. The organizers are particularly interested in receiving proposals for
presentations on any of the following, or related, key themes and issues:
Target Audience for the Satellite Meeting
We welcome librarians from public, academic, special and school libraries who
are interested in developing their information literacy skills and knowledge;
and librarians who want to understand how to build a strong information
literacy culture in their libraries. We also encourage the attendance of
library and information science students and faculty as well as association
staff who are interested in the topic.
All keynote presentations and a selection of other significant presentations at
the conference will be peer reviewed and published by K.G. Saur as part of the
IFLA “greenback” publication series.
The conference will be conducted in English. All papers and presentations will
be required to be in English (it is hoped to translate papers into the official
IFLA languages post-conference for addition to the conference website)
Proposals must be submitted in electronic format.
Proposals should be sent, no later than November 9, 2011, to
