AfLIA and her partners, in collaboration with SPARC Africa, is organizing a 2-day post-conference workshop on Library Publishing as an important strand of Open Access. The underlying principle is to develop a cohort of African librarians who would serve as a community of trainers and who will be able to propagate open practices through Library publishing in their respective regions.
The workshop has the following objectives:
The workshop will take place on 27-28 May 2023, immediately after the close of the 5th AfLIA Conference and 7th African Library Summit.
Successful applicants will receive full sponsorship covering air and local travel, visa processing, feeding, and accommodation for the period of the workshop. The sponsorship also covers conference registration fees of successful applicants. Workshop participants are expected to arrive in Accra, Ghana, on 22nd May 2023, participate in the 5th AfLIA 2023 Conference and 7th African Library Summit and stay on for the post-conference workshop on 27th – 28th May, 20-23. Departure will be on Monday, 29th May 2023.
