ACURIL 2018 : Open Access in Caribbean Libraries, Archives and Museums: Opportunities, Challenges and Future Directions


The Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL) is excited to announce that its 48th Conference, to be held from June 3 – 7, 2018 in beautiful Dominican Republic, will focus on the theme Open Access in Caribbean Libraries, Archives and Museums: Opportunities, Challenges and Future Directions.
Globally, Libraries, Archives and Museums are challenged to manage their operational budgets, engage their user communities, develop innovative services and function as a gateway to open access resources. Caribbean Libraries are not immune to these challenges. In this information society, open access technologies provide opportunities for Caribbean Libraries, Archives and Museums to rise above these challenges and still achieve these respective goals.
Through dynamic presentations, poster sessions, workshops and the exhibitors fair, the 2018 ACURIL Conference seeks to:
  • Open a discourse amongst Caribbean information professionals about the relevance of the open access movement and its future directions.
  • Allow delegates to exchange information, experiences and best practices.
  • Provide an opportunity for delegates to learn how to develop skills and competencies to use open access tools and technologies.
  • Foster collaboration with  ACURIL's Exhibitors and other stakeholders to develop new platforms to enhance service delivery.
  • Establish a registry of open access projects in Caribbean Libraries, Archives and Museums.
