Libraries Supporting Our Ocean
Sustaining and preserving our shared ocean for our shared future
The planning committee of the 47th Annual Conference of the International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centres (IAMSLIC) and the 19th European (EURASLIC) conference is excited to invite you to join us virtually, live from the Marine Institute, Galway, Ireland on the 12-14 October 2020.
The 2021 conference theme is Libraries Supporting Our Ocean: Sustaining and preserving our shared ocean for our shared future. 2021 marks the start of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. IAMSLIC is on the frontline supporting our scientists to achieve this aim. Our organisation represents libraries from across the globe, all sharing our one ocean for our one future. Together we can share our library knowledge, our institutional missions, and our sustainability messages to further our personal understanding. We can return our learnings to our institutions, showing how our libraries can help respond and adapt to changes in our ocean and climate through our support services.
Our conference hopes to inspire a shared understanding of our ocean. We want it to be a catalyst to propel you to action. We want to celebrate how we as information professionals have a hand in shaping our shared future through the sustainable use of our oceans. We invite you to share your message with us, your IAMSLIC family. What does your library or institution do well to safeguard our future?
At this conference let us all see the future together.
We will open the call for proposals next week.
