The main theme in this year's congress programme will be the 10th anniversary of the Vision of the librarianship development in Slovenia.
The first session From Vision to Strategy 2003 – 2013 will highlight a range of professional orientations, including which goals have been achieved, or what has been changed in this period.

Librarians are holders of public service programmes in the field of library and information science. And it is our daily task to advocate public service and constantly explain the role and significance of libraries. Therefore, an important part of the programme will be dedicated to the reflections on advocacy of libraries, librarianship and librarians.

Library activities as public service have been carried out for a long time not just within the traditional analogue framework but more and more intensively within the digital world as well. The session entitled Library public service on the Web will be certainly of great interest to all professional protagonists.
At conferences and meetings, we consider again and again that working in libraries is for the people and with the people. The session entitled Librarian 2023 will be dedicated to us – librarians, and our professional competencies and issues related to them.
We cannot look into the future without considering the past, so the professional heritage left by our predecessors will be highlighted as well. The professional conclusions and visions of the former librarians will be presented. Their work is respected and appreciated so much that it is still an honour to bestow and receive the awards named by them
Besides the SLA awards ceremony, the traditional Networking in practice III will take place, and there are many more surprises waiting for the participants.
