The Asia-Pacific Conference on Library & Information Education & Practice (A-LIEP) began today at the Nanyang Technological Center, Singapore, and runs until 6 April 2006. The conference program is available online, and the individual papers may be downloaded as Word documents. The papers have also been printed in a handsome volume entitled Preparing Information Professionals for Leadership in the New Age, edited by Christopher Khoo, Diljit Singh and Abdus Sattar Chaudhry. I will post a photo later so you can see what I mean.
The papers being presented by Filipinos are the following:
- "An Assessment of the Perception of Licensed Librarians About Their Academic Preparation and Satisfaction in Their Job as Librarians" (doc) by Lourdes David and Dante Perez
- "Shifting Gears: Dimensions of Research and Communication Behavior in the Sphere of Academic Freedom" (doc) by Lleuvelyn Cacha
- "Money and Leadership: A Study of Theses on Public School Libraries Submitted to the University of the Philippines' Institute of Library and Information Science" (doc) by Vernon Totanes (Note: I'll be posting a revised version of my paper after I present because my editor-itis can't forgive some of the errors I committed LOL)
