Why Attend

Why this conference matters 

This EARCOS-sponsored Librarian Conference is one of the few of its kind. Although there are other similar events world-wide, this librarian weekend focuses on professionals who work in different environments but in the same part of the world. This situation guarantees diversity yet individual experiences all at once.

The focus of this event is on multiculturalism and multilingualism, something that affects our students and our practice in many ways. What better than to learn from other professionals who find themselves in a similar situation to ours?


One of the best aspects of this conference is the chance to interact with colleagues who perform jobs similar to ours. Not only that, but the amount of collaboration and assistance librarians give each other is astounding.

In this conference you will...

  • Participate in in-depth learning and professional workshops in the field of school librarianship.

  • Get ideas for improving library services.

  • Network with school librarians from around East Asia.

  • Benchmark individual library programs to best practices in the profession.

  • Inspire and activate ideas for improving library services with consideration to the cultures and communities we serve.
