Dear Fellow Library Educators, Students, & Librarians

The Philippine Association of Teachers of Library and Information Science is pleased to invite you to its Annual Forum on “The Effects of Baby Boomers Retirements and the New Skills Needed for the Next Generation of Librarians“ on September 14, 2012 at 8:00 am – 10:00 am, Meeting Room 3, SMX Convention Center. Speakers are: Dr. Juan C. Buenrostro, Jr., Chief Librarian, Baliuag University & Professor of Library and Information Science, U.E.; and Prof. Johann F. Cabbab, Dean, School of Library and Information Science, University of the Philippines. This forum is in conjunction with the 33rd Manila International Book Fair (MIBF).

1. To understand the effects of retirements of the baby boomers to library services;
2. To connect the effects of retirements to the rising demand for more technology savvy librarians; and
3. To find out whether hip groups of librarians who combined geeky  intellectualism with IT skills and social activism will dominate the next  generation of librarians.

Attend this very timely forum and join us in thinking what kinds of people are being attracted to librarianship today and what attributes should librarians bring to the dynamic library workplace of today and tomorrow.

Joining Fee: P 200.00 for Non-PATLS member
                      P 150.00 for PATLS member
                     P 50.00 for undergraduate LIS student
