The 11th A-LIEP conference theme is: LIS Education, Research, and Practice: Resiliency, Equity, and Solidarity. This conference focuses on the challenges, opportunities, drivers and innovations in LIS education, research, and practice that were experienced and encountered by individuals and institutions to adapt and survive the recent pandemic and moving forward to the post-pandemic. The implementation of remote teaching and learning, application of alternative research methods, and dependency on online information services has brought about issues in inequalities of information access and use, injustices and abuses in creation and dissemination of information, misinformation, censorship, and control of the narrative by the powerful. On the other hand new practices and processes have emerged and alternative research and teaching methods have been effected during these times that showed the resilience of the field, the educators, researchers and practitioners. The conference provides the venue for the discussion of such issues, realizations, and innovations the context of information use, information professions, libraries, LIS education, and LIS research.
The conference is an on-site face to face event, however, options to join and present online for those who cannot attend onsite will be available.
