What I Talk About When I Talk About Libraries
In the year when the Serbian Library Association (SLA) marks seven decades of its work (1947–2017), it organizes the 14th conference with international participation dedicated to the questions of advocacy, promotion and lobbying on behalf of libraries and library and information activities.
The SLA conference will gather librarians and stakeholders from the country and abroad, who will present successful stories, fulfilled and envisioned projects, realized and planned initiatives and strategies. Inspired by the title of the book written by the famous author Haruki Murakami (What I Talk About When I Talk About Running), we want to explore practical examples, steps, preparation and everyday experience, but also to discover the most desirable partners for advocating and lobbying on behalf of libraries, and define the target audience for the promotion of libraries in the 21st century with the aim of recognizing their values and obtaining a better position for them.
