The objectives of the conference were to support the IFLA’s statement on libraries and sustainable development (IFLA Glasgow 2002), to give new insights on libraries and sustainable development and to enhance the roles of libraries in sustainable development initiatives.

Three parallel workshops addressed specific themes on event management, balance score card and key performance indicators for librarians.

A fascinating opening keynote address was given by Tan Sri Hamid Bugo, the Patron for the Librarian Association of Malaysia (Sarawak Chapter). His addressed the global perspective on the development of library and the importance of global thinking that can redefine the role and the functions of libraries in context of becoming relevant to the knowledge society.

Priyanto of Gadjah Mada University Library, noted the important step forward in relation to library networking and how to effectively involve people, government agencies and universities in the initiatives.

Issues on digital libraries and sustainable development continue to fascinate the audience which was elaborated further by Dr. Shahren Ahmad Zaidi Adruce of University Malaysia Sarawak and Soraya Ziaei of Ferdowsi University, Iran. Dr. Shahren Adruce challenged the audience to really think about the concept of information sharing and the technological protection measures that have greatly impacted the process of transforming traditional collection to digital. Soraya, meanwhile analyses the development strategy for Iranian digital libraries.

Investigating and assessing job satisfaction among academic librarians in eight university libraries in West Malaysia was conducted by Noor Harun Abdul Karim of Islamic International University, Malaysia.

They both enthralled the delegates with their perspectives on how university community and ICT can deliver sustainable human development to remote rural communities.

Siti Zakiah Aman, the Director General, National Library Malaysia, gave a thought-provoking closing keynote address. In her closing keynote address, Siti Zakiah began her talk with a discussion of her personal experience and challenges in spearheading the National Library. Quoting heavily from various National Library projects and initiatives, the closing keynote has fulfilled the conference theme “Libraries and sustainable development: perspectives on the future” by reiterating that librarians and information professionals need to meet the global challenges in the sustainable world.

The conference was officially closed with a conference summary and closing remark reported by the chairperson of the organizing committee, Rashidah Bolhassan. In her closing remark, she concluded that based on the paper presented and discussions being carried out, librarians and information professionals globally have envisioned what libraries can explore and contribute as we move into the sustainable development era. Global challenges in the library such as the financial impact on the global economic growth, information and communication technology and intellectual property, are met by empowering the community and creating collaborative efforts or partnership with related peer institutions. However, librarians shouldn’t sit on their laurels, as we also need to think big following the rapid growth in the library spheres. Finally, she applauded the success of the conference, highlighting the importance of great teamwork among the committee members of the Librarian Association of Malaysia. She hoped to bring the conference to a new level that will again provide high quality content of papers as part of its contribution to the librarians from all over the world.

On the 1st day of the conference, Emerald Insight had generously sponsored The K-Trends and Cats cocktail event to commemorate their 40th anniversary and the highlights of the evening was the cake cutting ceremony by Rashidah Bolhassan. Hour followed by good food, drinks and lucky draws from Emerald Insights.

Later in the evening of 12 July, the conference State Banquet hosted by the Pustaka Negeri Sarawak was held at the Sarawak Chamber Ballroom, Crowne Plaza Riverside Hotel and officiated by the guest of honour, the Deputy Chief Minister of Sarawak, Tan Sri Datuk George Chan. All delegates, library vendors and guests were entertained with traditional dances of all ethnic groups in Sarawak.

Further highlight was the Rainforest Music Festival which is an annual event in Sarawak. It is a unique festival that brings together world renowned musicians from all over the world within the green grounds of the Sarawak Cultural Village (SCV) at the foothill of Mount Santubong, outside Kuching. Delegates were transported to SCV at 6.00pm where they were entertained by ethno musicians up till the wee hour 12am!

Finally delegates committed themselves to the workshop, the next day held at Centre for Academic Information Services (CAIS), University Malaysia Sarawak the 8th Public University in Malaysia located at Kota Samarahan, 30km from Kuching.

The experience speakers engaged themselves in discussions and Q&A to identify common problems and solutions related to the themes.

(ihsan berita dari Setiausaha PPMKSAR, En Wan Mazli bin Wan Razali)

Rombongan para Pustakawan dan pegawai Pustaka Negeri Sarawak, Unit ICT, Jabatan Ketua Menteri Sarawak, Sarawak Information System Sdn. Bhd. dan Dewan Bandaraya Kuching Utara (DBKU) telah mengadakan lawatan ke PPIK Kampung Telaga Air, Kuching Sarawak pada Sabtu, 10 Jun 2006 jam 9.30 pagi.

Tujuan lawatan diadakan adalah bertujuan untuk meninjau perkembangan kemudahan yang disediakan oleh Kementerian Tenaga, Air dan Komunikasi (KTAK) di Perpustakaan desa berkenaan.

PPIK adalah satu program biayaan KTAK yang diperkenalkan pada 2005 bagi merapatkan jurang digital diantara penduduk Bandar dan luar Bandar. Program PPIK ini dibangunkan di atas perpustakaan desa dibawah projek Pemberian Perkhidmatan Sejagat (PPS) atau “Universal Service Provision (USP)”. Projek PPS adalah penyediaan infrastruktur ICT untuk penambahbaikan sesebuah perpustakaan di kawasan luar Bandar. Manakala PPIK adalah penyediaan sumber manusia yang terlatih bagi membantu kominiti memanfaatkan infrastruktur ICT yang disediakan untuk bagi meningkatkan tahap celik maklumat yang sekaligus meningkatkan taraf hidup masyarakat setempat.

PPIK berfungsi untuk:-
* menyediakan perkhidmatan infrastruktur komunikasi dan kemudahan capaian Internet di kawasan luar bandar, pinggir bandar dan pedalaman;
* merapatkan jurang digital antara masyarakat di kawasan bandar dan luar bandar serta masyarakat luar jangkau (underserve community); dan
*menyediakan latihan dan kemahiran ICT kepada masyarakat di kawasan luar bandar, pinggir bandar dan pedalaman.

Kampung Telaga Air terletak di pinggir Bandaraya Kuching. Perjalanan ke kampung ini adalah selama lebih kurang lima puluh minit dari pusat Bandar. Kebanyakan penduduk adalah dari kalangan bangsa Melayu beragama Islam. Nelayan dan Petani adalah pekerjaan utama masyarakat di sini. Ianya telah dipilih sebagai tapak perintis program PPIK di Negeri Sarawak tahun 2005 kesan dari sambutan yang amat menggalakan dari masyarakat tempatan tentang peri pentingnya perpustkaan di kampung mereka. Perpustakaan Kampung Telaga Air diletakan dibawah bidang kuasa Majlis Perbandaran Padawan.

Sepanjang lawatan para Pustakawan dan pegawai tersebut telah diberi penerangan tentang PPIK Telaga Air. Rombongan lawatan juga berpeluang melihat program literasi maklumat dan komputer untuk warga emas yang dikendalikan oleh penyelia yang telah dilantik oleh KTAK iaitu Cik Mariani Mohamad bersama dengan Ahli Jawatankuasa beliau.

Semenjak dilaksana PPIK pada 2 Mei 2006 beliau telah melatih seramai 101 warga Kampung Telaga Air.

Antara aktiviti lain yang turut diadakan di PPIK adalah:-
* Sesi pengenalan kepada internet dan laman web yang berkaitan dengan kerjaya mereka.
* Memperkenalkan laman-laman web kerajaan
* Penggunaan komunikasi dalam talian melalui mel elektronik.

Dilihat program PPIK anjuran KTAK amat bermakna untuk masyarat luar Bandar. Sambutan yang diterima selepas program PPIK ini dilancerkan amat menggalakkan daripada para peserta kerana melalui program ini mereka dapat meningkatkan pengetahuan dalam bidang yang diceburi serta dapat mencetuskan idea-idea baru yang bernas untuk kepentingan mereka sama ada dari segi kerjaya atau maklumat untuk meningkatkan tahap literasi.

KTAK telah manambahbaik 104 Perpustakaan Awam dan Desa di Negeri Sarawak hasil dari Projek USP yang dilaksanakan mengikut fasa bermula dari fasa ke-2 pada 2003 sehingga fasa ke-4 pada 2005. KTAK telah meneruskan projek ini dengan fasa ke-5 pada 2006. Program PPIK juga diteruskan, dan Pustaka Negeri Sarawak telah mencadangkan 35 tapak dari kalangan tapak-tapak USP sedia ada untuk program ini.
