The Sociable Librarian: Connecting & Creating Communities 

 

Thursday 16th (half day) & Friday 17th February, 2017

 
Radisson Blue Royal Hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin 8
 
 
 
In 2016, we smashed the stereotype of the lonely
librarian. Join us in 2017 as we celebrate the sociable
librarian.
 
Traditionally the role of the librarian was to connect
people with information but our role has evolved to now
include connecting people with people. The library
profession is full of sociable and socially-minded people
who care about their user communities and who often create
new ones. We build communities by communicating and
connecting people within our organisations and beyond. We
network with each other which strengthens and enriches us
as a profession. Being sociable is an integral part of
being a librarian today.
 
The A&SL Committee invites submissions on the following
topics or any others that may be relevant to the theme:
 
Communication skills
Communities of practice
Supporting and empowering communities
Marketing and promotion of resources and services
Social media
Journal Clubs
Mentoring
Outreach
Event Management/Exhibitions
Sociable library spaces
Professional networking
Training and Facilitating
Intranets/Websites
 
“Great libraries build communities.” R. David Lankes
 
 
You can contribute to the conference in one of the
following formats
•       Case Study
•       Workshop or Learning Session
•       Lightning Presentation
•       Poster
 
 
Please find email aslsectionevents@gmail.com for submission forms for Case Studies,
Workshops/Learning Sessions, Lightning Presentations, and
Posters.  They include further details and useful
information with regard to making a submission.
 
Closing Date: Friday 16th September, 2016
