[InetBib] Call for Papers - 34th Annual IATUL Conference

Call for Papers

"Doing it together: effective collaboration in scientific and technological 
university libraries" 

The IATUL 2013 Programme Committee invites proposals for papers and posters for 
the 34th IATUL Annual Conference. 

The Conference will focus on how academic libraries are using collaboration 
both within their own organizations, and in a wider context to achieve their 
goals. Libraries work together with faculty, and other units within their 
institutions in order to contribute to teaching and learning, research and 
enhance student and community engagement. They also work with other libraries, 
research institutes and the scientific community at large, vendors, industry, 
civil society and political bodies so as to increase their effectiveness. At 
regional, national and international level they join together to form effective 
consortia and organizations that together are able to achieve more than what 
one library in isolation would hope to achieve. 

It is in the spirit of this collaboration that e-science, e-learning, cloud 
computing have all become important considerations for libraries – harnessing 
the ability to share ideas, successes and networks with one another.

In Africa, UBUNTU is a traditional form of sharing, a value underpinning 
relationships to each other and the world. In
the shadow of Table Mountain, let us collaborate in the spirit of UBUNTU by 
sharing our experiences of effective
