The Asia-Pacific Health, Law and Special libraries conference theme will delve into all things Connecting.

Recent years have brought changes to the way we live and work, where we live and work and how we interact. Connecting with each other, with our communities and cultures, with technology, and with information have become more critical than ever before. This theme looks at our learnings from the recent challenges and focuses on the opportunities for the future. We are seeking your contributions to deliver a fresh, engaging and stimulating conference program. This will be a conference about challenges, experiences and possibilities and moving to a more sustainable and connected future. Key topics will include inclusion, sustainability, innovation and collaboration, information access, equity and inclusion, culture, technology, and the future of the profession.
