Connected Actions, Collective Vision: Libraries Transforming Society
PLAI envisions to lead the country’s library community in a collective call to connected actions towards transforming society. Libraries have the capacity to transform societies, thereby contributing to the development of a nation.
The annual congress aims to update Filipino librarians of the trends, practices, and innovative information services among libraries, address issues related to the librarianship profession, and generate renewed interest in conducting research among librarians.
This National Congress aims to:
1. understand the role of libraries and information centers in building literate, informed, and participative societies, thereby contributing to societal, cultural, and economic growth of a nation; 2. recognize that connected actions and collective vision of the library community will help libraries address the challenges of the future; 3. engage libraries, archives, and other cultural heritage partners and institutions in safeguarding cultural heritage in all its diverse forms, and; 4. advocate the roles of librarians and library associations as key players for societal improvements and change through capacity building and professional agenda.
