Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is a great pleasure and an honor to welcome you to the 4th Conference of the Lebanese Library Association (LLA) that is being held in collaboration with Asia and Oceania Regional Section of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) from 9-11 May 2018 at the Le Commodore Hotel, Beirut, Lebanon.
The theme of the LLA 2018 Conference “Innovative Libraries: Paths to Future” will identify and address how technology is transforming innovation in libraries. With re-imagination and clear vision, libraries are infusing new technologies while creating dynamic meeting places, digital repositories, 24/7 digital services, and remote access to physical and cloud-based collections, regardless of boundaries. Cutting edge modern architecture and design are prevalent in many libraries in the world. These libraries have become a hub for information access, research and collaboration, and information sharing around the globe, even amidst tight financial resources. These libraries have adapted well in changing with the needs of their communities.
The event will feature prestigious speakers fromform the USA, Europe, Asia and Africa and as well as respected colleagues from the Arab world and Lebanon.
The Conference will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing you with the opportunity to meet and interact with the leading researchers, friends, and colleagues as well as sponsors and exhibitors.
We do hope that you will join us in what promises to be a most extraordinary event!
