Download lecture-presentations here:  

The Philippine Association of Academic/Research Librarians, Inc. (PAARL) will be holding a three‐day National Summer Conference 2015 with the theme “Transcending Roles of Information Professionals: Going Beyond Concepts, Exceeding Expectations.”

This professional activity will be held at De Luxe Hotel, Capt. Vicente Roa Street, Cagayan De Oro City on April 22‐24, 2015.    

  • Libraries and information centers in the country are now challenged with the rapidly changing technologies, the advancing methodologies in researches, the continuously increasing volumes of digital information, and the growing diversified information needs and behavior of students and researchers, all in the midst of the era of digital information.  Librarians and information professionals must do something to move alongside with these constantly developing phenomena, thus the need to transcend from the traditional roles of information professionals.     
  • Librarians, library administrators, researchers, faculty and students of LIS are invited to participate in this conference. The conference specifically evolves on the following objectives:
  1. To provide a deep understanding on the new and unconventional concepts in librarianship as results of continuously changing needs in academic and research environments;
  2. To equate  the roles of information professionals with these changing needs; and,
  3. To present several options of transcended roles of information professionals to keep astride with the new concepts in librarianship and to exceed traditional expectations.  

A CHED memo endorsement is being applied for this conference.
