Dear Colleague:

The Philippine Librarians Association, Inc. and its National Capital
Region Librarians Council in cooperation with the International
Federation of Library Associations and Institutions / Committee on
Free Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (IFLA-FAIFE)
cordially invite you to attend the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
INFORMATION ACCESS: INTERNET AND LIBRARIES to be held at the City
Garden Suites, 1158 A. Mabini St., Ermita, Manila on July 23-25, 2008.

The conference aims to:

1. inform participants on what the IFLA-FAIFE Internet Manifesto is
all about;
2. discuss the relationships among freedom to access to information,
the Internet and Libraries and Information Services;
3. discuss barriers to the flow of information and how these barriers
can be removed;
4. discuss strategies, policies, and plans that implement the
principles expressed in the Internet Manifesto;
5. discuss current policies and practices of Philippine Internet use.

Towards these ends, we have lined up interesting topics to be
discussed by experts in the field including concerned IFLA-FAIFE
officials. We have also invited local experts to talk about policies
on Internet use in libraries in the Philippines.

Conference fee is Ph4,000.00 to cover snacks, lunches, conference kit
