CFP: ALIA New Librarians’ Symposium 2006: Pathways & Possibilities

ALIA New Librarians’ Symposium 2006: Pathways & Possibilities
Scientia, University of New South Wales
Sydney, Australia
Conference Dates: 1-2 December 2006
Deadline Date: 31 March 2006

The ALIA New Librarians’ Symposium is the premier event for new library and information professionals, and past events have been hugely successful. The symposium is expected to attract approximately 350 delegates from around Australia, New Zealand, and the South-East Asian region.

Symposium themes
Our theme for NLS2006 is Pathways and Possibilities. Pathways illustrate the practical steps we need to further our career and profession, while Possibilities is all about the big picture - the assumptions underpinning our profession, and what the future holds for us.

First-time presenters, early career LIS researchers and research students are particularly invited to submit a proposal. NLS2006 is an opportunity for you to inspire and speak to your peers about issues that affect you.

Abstracts are due by March 31 and should consist of no more than 300 words. Please note that acceptance of the abstract does not mean acceptance of the paper, which will be considered against other abstracts received.

All papers from the Symposium will be published on the ALIA New Librarians’ Symposium website.
