SCECSAL 2012: Impressions of conference participants

“The conference has enabled me to learn from the diversity of experience that participants brought to the conference. These include Librarians, ICT Experts, researchers, practitioners, educators etc. Feedback from the conference was very positive – participants greatly enjoyed the chance to meet like-minded people from so many countries, the opportunity to network and to learn from one another, and the chance to explore ideas.”

“A stand out session at the conference for me was the presentation by Ellen Tise ([…] Senior Director, Library and Information Services at Stellenbosch University, South Africa) who’s paper titled ‘Global Development Trends in Information Management’ outlined international trends in libraries, including how libraries can function in the changing knowledge economy; the way space in libraries is changing and becoming more important to patrons (what Tise called the growth of iAccess to include sAccess – social access); and how libraries need to be more service-focused rather than product-orientated. Most of what she stated in her presentation aligned with the goals and objectives of the Ulwazi Programme!”
