This year's theme

The 11th A-LIEP conference theme is: LIS Education, Research, and Practice: Resiliency, Equity, and Solidarity

This conference focuses on the challenges, opportunities, drivers and innovations in LIS education, research, and practice that were experienced and encountered by individuals and institutions to adapt and survive the recent pandemic and moving forward to the post-pandemic. The implementation of remote teaching and learning, application of alternative research methods, and dependency on online information services has brought about issues in inequalities of information access and use, injustices and abuses in creation and dissemination of information, misinformation, censorship, and control of the narrative by the powerful. On the other hand new practices and processes have emerged and alternative research and teaching methods have been effected during these times that showed the resilience of the field, the educators, researchers and practitioners. The conference provides the venue for the discussion of such issues, realizations, and innovations the context of information use, information professions, libraries, LIS education, and LIS research. The conference is an on-site face to face event, however, options to join and present online for those who cannot attend onsite will be available.

Tracks and Integration Sessions

The conference will feature full and short research paper presentations on the following main topics/themes: LIS Education, LIS Practice, and LIS Research. There will be two integration sessions and these are: a) Education and Pedagogy Panel  and b) Student Research Ideathon where students can discuss potential research projects, collaborate, and learn from one another.

The track on Education and Pedagogy, which was introduced in 2021, provides a venue for discussions relating to pedagogy, curriculum, tenure, promotion, and other matters relating to LIS educators and teaching.  We are inviting submissions of abstracts for discussion for a maximum of 3,000 words.

The Student Research Ideathon is a venue where students can participate and exchange ideas on how to draft research proposals and conduct research.  This can be an opportunity for students to get research collaborators, or suggestions for improvement of their proposals, or ideas for their future research.  We are inviting proposals from students/alumni who have already completed their research or students who currently are in the stages of drafting proposals to share their experiences, issues, roadblocks, best practices, etc.
