Marketing and communications have been said to be the spearhead of the profession of librarianship in its effort to become more visible. For several years the IFLA Section of Management and Marketing (http://archive.ifla.org/VII/s34/somm.htm) has been trying to help librarians around the world to get a better knowledge of marketing as well as a more effective use of its various techniques.

Again in 2000, the Section is offering a pre-conference satellite workshop on marketing devoted mainly to the communications aspects and especially focused on applications to academic, national and large libraries. The workshop will be held in beautiful Haifa (Video available at http://www.haifa.gov.il/tourism/VideoEng.html) in the north of Israel, and the University of Haifa will host the workshop. Instruction will be given mainly in English but we are now trying to find resources in order to offer simultaneous translation into French.

For this unique professional development opportunity, an experienced and well known team of instructors has been recruited: Christie Koontz from South Florida University, Marielle de Miribel from Université de Paris 10 (Mediadix), Réjean Savard from Université de Montréal, Christina Tovoté from the University of Malmö, Sheila Webber from the University of Strathclyde, and Tom Wilding from the University of Texas at Arlington.

Moreover, special guests will come from different libraries in different countries to bring to the participants interesting marketing and communications experiences that will be discussed as case studies.
