Equal Access to Information and Knowledge in the Caribbean:
An Inalienable Right for All
From Intention to Proactive Action

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

Major Sponsors
Office of the President, University of Puerto Rico
and ACURIL Institutional Members in Puerto Rico

Conference Theme

Equal Access to Information and Knowledge in the Caribbean: An Inalienable Right for
All is the conference theme chosen for ACURIL XXXVII PUERTO RICO. The organization
and sharing of information, and the provision of equal access to that information and
knowledge, for all sectors of the community, is key to building a knowledge-based
society in the Caribbean. These information-organization activities are essential for
teaching and learning, research and development, sound decision-making, the
betterment of quality of life, and the sustainable development of all of our countries. A
free exchange of ideas on allthese topics will stimulate continued communication, and
the integration of the people in the Caribbean within the global information society.









To effectively explore the conference theme, the following topics have been selected
as sub-themes for ACURIL 2007.

The value of information and its impact on national information policies in the
Caribbean: challenges and opportunities.
Competencies of the new information professional in the Caribbean: challenges
and proactive action.
Information organization and retrieval: a challenge for a networked knowledge
community in the Caribbean.
Knowledge management and equal access to information for the sustainable
development of the Caribbean: challenges and opportunities.
The development of information and knowledge skills based on critical
thinking, evidence and problem-solving in the Caribbean.
The development of emergent technologies applied to information units and
projects, digital libraries and virtual projects in a networked environment in
the Caribbean.

Two special events run along the Conference: the II ACURIL Festival on the
Development of Information and Knowledge Skills based on Critical Thinking,
Evidence and Problem Solving in the Caribbean; and the 1st Forum on Emergent
Technologies: Webquests, Blogs, Wikis, etc., in the Caribbean.


OUR LOGO

Raices (Roots) is a large bronze fountain sculpted in 1992 by the Spanish artist Luis
Sanguino. The construction of the allegoric group started in november 1991 and
ended May 30, 1992. The sculpture was inaugurated at La Princesa Promenade, in Old
San Juan, to commemorate the 500 years of the discovery of America. It depicts the
Amerindian, African, and Spanish origins of Puerto Rico as human figures, with
dolphins cavorting at their feet. The 19th-century promenade was an esplanade
where the Spanish colonial gentry once strolled while enjoying the balmy Caribbean
air. The photograph was taken by artist Edgar Jimenez-Ferrer, University of Puerto
Rico Library System, Rio Piedras Campus, for ACURIL XXXVII PUERTO RICO.


CONFERENCE OPENING CEREMONY

This official activity will be held on Sunday, June 3, 2007, at 19.00h (7:00 p.m.). A
reception follows the ceremony. It is the ideal forum to meet with old and new
friends in order to initiate the participant's interaction within the conference. Attire:
