BIBLIST:are och IFLA-kollegor,

Här kommer ännu en gång programmet för vårt förseminarium i Bangkok den
19-20 augusti. Det är nu bara sex veckor dit och idag läggs programmet
ut en andra gång på IFLA-L-listan. Det las ut första gången tidigt i
mars och i juninumret av IFLA-Journal fanns en annons med mer detaljerat
program. Vidare har det gått ut i LAMA Leads, en elektronisk tidskrift
som ges ut av ALA/LAMA och går till 1.600 bibliotekarier över världen.
Som ni förstår riktar vi oss i första hand till  thailändska,
indonesiska m. fl. kollegor, vilket också är förklaringen till att
priset är så lågt, 25 $. Jag klistrar in ett brev från en sådan kollega,
så förstår ni hur svårt det är med avgifter för biblioteken i de
Men även nordiska och övriga länders kollegor är välkomna och vi i
sektionen Management and Marketing är tacksamma för all hjälp att sprida
informationen. 30 deltagare är välkomna och hittills finns det plats för
c:a 5 -10 st till.

especially in the era of economic crisis we are suffering this time.
this e-mail may I apply for joining the important meeting.

I am the chief Librarian af the SEAMEO BIOTROP, a regional Centre active
training and research on Tropical Biology. Opreationally, the Centre is
funded by the Government of Indonesia. For your information, my name is
officially registered as the participant of the next IFLA general
meeting in
Bangkok, Thailand, and my trip is financialy funded by the DANIDA grant
airfare, board and lodging, the conference fee, and daily subsistence
US$ 10.00 during the conference). I understand that interesting party
pay US$ 25.00 for the meeting fee, but as you understand that due to the

economic crunch we are suffering now our government could not fund any
expenses. Therefore, I would be very happy if I will be excempted from
required fee, thus, I will need additional money for room extension

Thank you very much for you your attention and kind considertation. I am

looking forward to hearing from you soon.
