34th Annual SALIS Conference
May 22-25, 2012
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Rapidly evolving technology and the current state of economic scarcity is creating a new environment in the fields of information science and substance abuse. Organizational and information "silos" of the past are no longer effective because they foster competition, complacency, redundancy, isolation and suspicion in an environment that requires collaboration, accessibility, efficiency, responsiveness and sustainability.
How can we, as information scientists and professionals in substance abuse professionals and related fields, view this need for change as an opportunity instead of a crisis? How can we step out of our silos to break down barriers to communication, create reciprocal partnerships and find new and sustainable ways to present information to the diverse populations we serve?
SALIS is planning a conference with speakers to interest those working in prevention, treatment, and libraries.
The call-for-abstracts submission period will open in early January, 2012.
