The AISA Librarian’s Conference, now in its fourth year, offers international school librarians from across Africa the opportunity to connect, collaborate, and learn from each other. 


KEY AUDIENCE: Librarians (EC-12) and Library Assistants

This learning event has been postponed from 26 - 28 MARCH 2020 to 24 - 26 SEPTEMBER 2020

We aim to offer a conference pre-session with Follett on Thursday 26 March, followed by two days of librarian-led sessions along with interactive learning experiences. Participants will leave the conference with actionable ideas, a wealth of new resources, and a network of colleagues. 

The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for international school librarians to connect with and learn from each other, thus raising the bar for the quality of librarianship on the continent.

 As a result of attending this institute, the participants can expect to:

  • Developing collaborative relationships
  • Sharing future ready best practices
  • Exploring new technologies to enhance curricular support

This event is kindly sponsored by AISA member, EBSCO. Due to this generous sponsorship this event is free for AISA member-schools. Free places are limited to two people per school. This event is not open to non-members.
AISA is very grateful to EBSCO for their partnership.
