IAMSLIC Conference -Zanzibar

Created on Monday, November 14, 2011 - 11:36


The last IAMSLIC conference took place in Zanzibar in Tanzania from october 16th-21st, 2011. It was the first IAMSLIC meeting in Africa. It gathered around 40 participants. This meeting was a good opportunity for African libraries to present how they share knowledge and resources. Some of them have presented their experiences with IODE, ORDINAFRICA and Aquatic commons.
There was also an interesting session concerning new roles for librarians.

During the Conference new officers were elected:

President: Sally Taylor, University of British Columbia
Secretary: Maureen Nolan, University of Washington

Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous part of Tanzania in East Africa. It is situated in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 kilometres off the coast of the mainland. This meeting gave us also the opportunity to explore the wonderful island of Zanzibar with its capital known as Stone Town, the World Heritage Site. Zanzibar's ecology is of note for being the home of the endemic Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey and the island is well known for spices.

The next IAMSLIC meeting in 2012 will be in cold countries : it will take place in Anchorage in Alaska
