The 2nd Regional Workshop on School Libraries in ASEAN Countries: a Joint Workshop IASL

Registration is now closed!

Departemen Ilmu Perpustakaan dan Informasi Fakultas Ilmu Pengetahuan Budaya dan International Association of School Librarianship mengadakan akan mengadakan workshop internasional dengan tajuk The 2nd Regional Workshop on School Libraries in ASEAN Countries: a Joint Workshop IASL. Workshop akan dilaksanakan pada tanggal 18-19 Oktober 2016 di Auditorium Gedung 1, Fakultas Ilmu Pengetahuan Budaya dan akan dihadiri oleh Pustakawan Sekolah dari negara-negara ASEAN.


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.

We have received positive feedback and inputs to hold similar event again this year to follow up what has been presented and gained in this workshop.


  1. to sustain the networking of school librarians in ASEAN countries
  2. to explore, learn and 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.
