18TH ANNUAL LIASA CONFERENCE

Re-envisioning the role of Library and Information Services

It has indeed been an interesting journey for LIASA since its inception as a library association in 1997 and as part of this journey the Annual Conference is now emerging as a highlight on the library and information services (LIS) calendar. As the Executive Committee we are committed to ensuring a conference that is exciting, stimulating, and thought-provoking and a platform that allows you to grow as a professional. To this end, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 18th LIASA Annual Conference to be held from 2 to 6 October 2017 at Birchwood Conference Centre, Gauteng.

The theme adopted for the 2017 LIASA Annual Conference, Re-envisioning the role of Library and Information Services, allows us to reflect on the current state of libraries and librarianship in South Africa and the future of the South African Library and Information services (LIS) sector. Socio-economic, educational and political disruption continue to challenge LIS service delivery while the purpose and relevance of the LIS sector and its position in a developmental state is questioned continuously. Further forces impacting on libraries and library practice include ubiquitous advances in technology, shifting educational landscapes, changing community demographics, and national and global development imperatives.

A successful re-envisioning process is an active process of reflection on what is, and what can be; is inclusive; requires visionary leadership, strategic thinking and planning, and a willingness to change. The outcome hereof is amongst others a paradigm shift, an engaged workforce in a dynamic profession and a supportive community.

LIASA Conference 2017, therefore, gives you – the library leader, the librarian, information worker or other interested party – the opportunity to share your concerns, challenges, experiences, best practices and innovative solutions towards re-envisioning your organisation, your professional development and the LIS sector.

Early Bird Registration closes: 31 July 2017Over 800 delegates attend the conference and over 30 exhibitors.
