Annual SLA Arabian Gulf Chapter Conference
This SLA Arabian Gulf Chapter held their 14th annual conference over the past week, and they received some GREAT media coverage from Qatar's leading English daily paper, The Peninsula on issues such as quality of information resources and services; measurement indicators in the digital environment; effectiveness of staff professional development and training; new approaches in LIS education and research; enhancing the leading role of information specialists in the digital environment; and evidence-based librarianship.
SLA President-Elect Gloria Zamora was able to address the attendees via video which was shown at the opening session. The three day conference was hosted by Qatar University, under the patronage of Sheikh Mashaal Bin Jaseem Al-Thani, Chairman of the National Council for Culture, Arts and Heritage. The event brought together more than 300 participants from 150 public, academic, school and medical libraries from the Middle East, Europe, Asia, U.S. and Africa.
During the opening session, Sheikh Mashaal said, "This conference stresses the crucial importance libraries and information services play in the life of our schools and academic institutions. Recommendations and information disseminated during this event will have significant benefit to the wider community in Qatar where the demand for and use of information technology and services are widespread."
Kudos to the Arabian Gulf Chapter for pulling off another wonderful conference and for attracting the attention of the media there.
Our team is always focused on the most successful marketing campaigns, for example, if someone wants to buy cialis online, he knows where to do it because of the quality product and a strong brand.
