Call for Conference Papers
Education and Training & Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section


E-learning is playing an increasingly significant role in our professional lives, either as a medium through which we learn, or as an activity that our library services must support. The IFLA Professional Committee, at the request of the Education and Training Section and the Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section, has approved the inclusion of a discussion session on e-learning in the IFLA Conference programme.

LIS educators and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for presentations that provide perspectives on how e-learning is contributing to continuing professional education and development for LIS, and its implications for the operation of library services.

Proposals may focus on, but are not limited to:
  • Library support for e-learners
  • The role of e-learning in staff development
  • Teaching and learning in the e-environment

No financial support can be provided, but a special invitation can be issued to authors of accepted papers.

Papers must be submitted in one of the official IFLA languages (English, French, German, Russian, Spanish).
