BACKGROUND

One area in the development of librarianship that needs attention is that of school libraries. School libraries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries are at various stages of development; some countries have well-established and managed school libraries, others have very basic only.

With the establishment of the ASEAN Community 2015 and the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement and many other developments in the region, it is important that school libraries be given attention, for they represent the base for the development of an information literate citizenry.

With this in mind,  in 2015 the School Library Committee of the Thai Library Association, Department of Library & Information Science, Srinakharinwirot University, Bangkok and the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL) have had a Workshop on the Development of School Libraries in the ASEAN Countries in Bangkok as a pre-conference activity preceding the CONSAL XVI (Conference of South ASEAN Librarians) meeting.

The participants shared ideas and experiences drawn from best practices and lessons learned in the development of school libraries  which were shown in their country reports.

The 2nd workshop was held at Universitas Indonesia and was a successful one. The 3rd workshop will be organized by Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) and will be held at the Ancasa Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

 

OBJECTIVES

  1. To sustain the networking of school librarians in ASEAN countries
  2. To explore, learn, discuss and share from each other the best practices, knowledge and experience in developing school libraries  among ASEAN Countries.
  3. To foster opportunities to collaborate school libraries programs among ASEAN Countries.
  4. To create and sustain  a communication and networking platform for school librarians, LIS professionals, Ministries of Education, National Libraries, Library Associations, School Library Associations, Universities, other interested organizations and individuals among ASEAN Countries.
