Slovenian Library Association Sections' Conference

18 – 19 September, 2014, Thermana, Laško, Slovenia





The 2014 meeting of the Slovenian librarians will focus on the professional Sections operating within the Slovenian Library Association. In the first part, there will be a presentation of all nine Sections, which have been established by all members of the professional Association in the recent years. The Sections represent the diversity and variety of the Slovenian library system, and the implementation of this diversity and variety can only be achieved with the integration and collaboration.

In two days, there will be various sessions providing different topics, including consideration of the gaps in the spatial accessibility of library services, the importance of a school librarian, involvement in projects, networking among librarians to develop literacy among pupils and students to help them to become active and lifelong library users, ethics in librarianship, models of cooperation, the relationship between the construction of the library building and the image of libraries, librarians and institutions, marketing opportunities in local history, staff problems of local history librarians, and consideration of higher education libraries between two spaces. There will also be two mobile libraries at the venue.
