Dear Colleagues, Librarians, Information specialists and Researchers,

We have the great pleasure to invite you to attend the conference either
as a speaker or as a participant, sharing the interest in and commitment
to multicultural issues within the library and information science field.

To create innovative services in the field of libraries and
multiculturalism may include a lot of specific measures and different
perspectives, for sure. During this conference we will focus especially on
issues connected to literacy, learning & linguistic diversity. And we plan
to do it on South African soil, in a society that has seen so much of
struggling for every man’s right of access to knowledge, information - and
The highlight on multicultural issues may be of great interest for you and
your organization /institution – and certainly to just anybody that is
involved in library and information working assignments in a multicultural
environment - and honestly, in our times - who isn’t??

Take this opportunity to share your experiences within the field with
other professionals - as a speaker or as an attendant. For more
information, check the conference website (address below). Registration
for participants has already started. For additional information please
look for updates at the homepage. We look forward to get proposals from
interested speakers before the 6th of March. Hope to see you at the
