Dear Acurileans,

The 46th ACURIL Conference to be held in Haiti on June 5-9, 2016 is fast approaching. The Conference Theme is “Leadership: A Bridge Between Tradition and Innovation in Libraries, Archives, and Museums of the Caribbean” With that theme in mind, Cheryl Peltier Davis and I have been planning the sessions that will be held by the Academic Libraries Special Interest Group during the conference and we would like to ask for your participation.

The subthemes for the conference are:

1. Lessons from the Past: Recognizing Leaders in Caribbean Libraries

2. Developing Leadership Skills

3. Best Practices in Innovation in the Caribbean.

The Academic Libraries Special Interest Group will focus our sessions on: Developing Leadership Skills and Best Practices in Innovation in the Caribbean.

Many libraries throughout the Caribbean have implemented outstanding programs and methods to develop leadership skills for their staff and have developed innovative programs in many areas. Cheryl and I invite you to share what you are doing in your library with your ACURIL colleagues. We are planning to have two sessions, one on each of these themes.


We would like to have two or three speakers on each of these themes. Each presentation should be 15 to 20 minutes in length. Please let me know if you are interested and provide a brief summary of your proposed paper to me as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you.


Please send a brief summary of your proposed paper to: barry.baker@ucf.edu by April 1, 2016.


I look forward to hearing from you.
