The Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL) is excited to announce that its 48th Conference, to be held from June 3 – 7, 2018 in beautiful Dominican Republic, will focus on the theme Open Access in Caribbean Libraries, Archives and Museums: Opportunities, Challenges and Future Directions.
Globally, Libraries, Archives and Museums are challenged to manage their operational budgets, engage their user communities, develop innovative services and function as a gateway to open access resources. Caribbean Libraries are not immune to these challenges. In this information society, open access technologies provide opportunities for Caribbean Libraries, Archives and Museums to rise above these challenges and still achieve these respective goals.
The Executive Board of the Library Association of Trinidad and Tobago (LATT) is pleased to provide further details on the upcoming 57th Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The theme of this year's AGM is “Access to information in a changing society”. Advances in Information and Communication Technologies have made access to information via various media literally limitless. The internet appears to have replaced the brick and mortar libraries and have become the go to resource for gathering of information. How do libraries and library professionals maintain their relevancy in the face of these emerging technologies?
