11th International Indigenous Librarians Forum - Call for Papers
Held every second year, the International Indigenous Librarians’ Forum is an opportunity for indigenous information professionals to network and discuss best practice models towards fostering and preserving indigenous languages, traditions, cultures and values within libraries, museums, archives and other educational institutions.
Celebrating 20 years in 2019, the Forum will return to the shores of Aotearoa New Zealand, to be held 7 – 10 February 2019.
The theme for IILF 2019 is “Tāmaki Herenga Waka” – which focuses on welcoming indigenous waka or vessels to return and tether within Tāmaki, providing a safe haven for discussions that will impact future generations of indigenous traditional knowledge and its’ acquisition, storage and use.
All Indigenous persons working in Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums are invited to submit a proposal. Papers will be presented in panels of three.
Deadline for submission is 30 March 2018. Visit the International Indigenous Librarians Forum website for full details.
