The Pacific Neighborhood Consortium (PNC) 2011 Annual Conference will be held at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand on 19 – 21 October 2011. The Conference is to be organized by Academia Sinica and in collaboration with Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute (HAII), National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) and Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. The main theme for the Conference is “Managing Climate Change: From Science to Digital Humanities and Sustainability”. The conference calls for input from perspectives of information technology as well as digital humanities to address this up-and-coming issue. The Conference will consist of oral presentation and poster demonstration.
In order to provide an opportunity for library professionals and those working with digital content and technology from around the world to share their working experiences and successful ideas, a “Librarian Poster Competition” is organized to tie-in with the Conference. CityU Library is honored to be invited to coordinate the Librarian Poster Competition.

Topics for submission in the "Librarian Poster Competition" should be related to one of the following domains:
Librarian Poster Competition covers a broad range of subjects, grouped according to such areas as
management, collection developments, technology, reference, and library services to special groups, etc. It provides the opportunity for library professionals and those working with digital content and technology from around the world to share their successful ideas by presenting a research study report, a practical problem-solving effort, or an innovative library program; and to allow staff to formulate project and brush up their logical thinking, writing, information organization and presentation skills as a form of staff development opportunity.
