Second Social Forum of Information, Documentation, and Libraries (SFIDL), now online & until 7 & 8 Sept in Mexico City

Second Social Forum of Information, Documentation, and Libraries (SFIDL), now online & until 7 & 8 Sept in Mexico City

The Study Circle on Political and Social Library Science (Mexico)
[Círculo de Estudios sobre Bibliotecología Política y Social] and the Social
Study Group on Library Science and Documentation (Argentina) [Grupo de
Estudios Sociales en Bibliotecología y Documentación], in collaboration with
library science and information science professionals, ANNOUNCE the Second
Social Forum of Information, Documentation and Libraries (SFIDL) to those
interested in participating in the virtual and live phases which will be
held in Mexico.

FSIDyB will develop virtually from March to July at:
http://www.inforosocial.org and will finish live in in Mexico City,
September 7 and 8, 2006 at the Anthropology Research Institute's Auditorium,
National Autonomous University of Mexico.

The entire process of producing, organization, preservation, and
socialization of information represents an act of identity and responsibility of
professionals and technicians in our societies. Nevertheless, the immobility
and the exclusion of sociopolitical topics on the agendas of professional
associations and public policies at the local, regional, and national
levels have impeded developing and articulating solution proposals; as well as
introducing social and economic transformations in our professional work.

The SFIDL is the continuation of the First Social Forum of Information,
Documentation and Libraries (Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 26-28, 2004)
and its purpose is Latin American interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary
integration in order to establish an agenda of professional activities,
offering results from professional and academic experiences and promoting
initiatives as mechanisms of social transformation and improved policies from
information sciences.
Access and participation are free
