ACURIL XLII – HAITI
Dear colleagues and friends
Greetings from Pétion-Ville, Haiti.
The 42nd annual conference of the Association of the Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL) will be held in the wonderful Haiti from June 4-8 2012. This very expected event will be for the first time on the haitian land, the first free black republic in the world, and will be organized by a devoted team of colleagues, information specialists, under my leadership. The event will be under the patronage of the President of Haiti, Mr. Michel Joseph MARTELLY, a great musician and great fan of the haitian culture.
The theme this year is:
365 DOORS OPENED ON THE TECHNOLOGICAL INFORMATION REVOLUTION. ECONOMIC, CULTURAL, SOCIAL AND POLITICAL IMPACTS\
We’ve collaborated to provide a significant learning space to facilitate new knowledge acquisition and ability development as members of the acurilean professional community.
This conference will be a space of enrichment for all ACURIL members and to the information professionals of the Caribbean atending this forty-second conference.
This event will host key conferences, seminars, workshops and poster presentations about the information industry with major updates to ensure the training objective is reached. The local organizing committee will do their best to make your stay in Haitimemorable.
Let’s share our experiences and enjoy from this learning environment and as well as the discovery of our beloved Haiti.
