The 2009 Newfoundland and Labrador Library Association
Conference is scheduled for Friday, May 1, and we want to hear from you!
We are seeking speakers to deliver presentations on any topic connected to
library or information work at all levels.
While we welcome proposals on the full range of library
topics, we are particularly interested in hearing from speakers who want to
talk about less prominent aspects or areas of the information profession.
How about a “Hinterland Who’s Who” on the rare (possibly endangered) species
that is the school librarian? The habitat of the library
technician? The migratory patterns of the information professional who
wanders beyond traditional territory?
In addition, we have invited Dr. Orland Hoeber of the
Department of Computer Science, Memorial University, to deliver a keynote
presentation on his research in the area of information visualization, Web
information retrieval, and Web intelligence.
While the conference will take place in St. John’s, you
don’t have to be in St. John’s to present or attend if you live near a video
conferencing centre (NLLA does not provide
travel funding for speakers). So if you have a 30-minute session to
propose, please get in touch with me by Friday, February 27.
We look forward to hearing from you!
