Wake up, the early bird gets the worm. All the New Professionals heading over to the Madre María Teresa Guevara Library for the NPSIG off-site session “New Professionals beyond New Professionals – skills, needs and strategies of a new generation of LIS professionals“.
IFLA New Professioanals SIG is looking forward to welcoming you on Monday, August 15 at “New Professionals beyond New Professionals – skills, needs and strategies of a new generation of LIS professionals.”
This message has a summary of all the important logistical information.
Madre María Teresa Guevara Library, University of Sacred Heart (208 Ponce de León Ave. Popular Suite 1501, Hato Rey, PR) on Monday, August 15, from 9:45 to 12:45.
To get to the venue, we will meet at 8:15 a.m. in front of the Puerto Rico Convention Center and take Bus #10 to Estacion Sagrado Corazon (train station). From there it is only a short walk. Don’t worry about transportation; there will be someone to guide you from the Convention Center to the venue. Each bus ride costs .50 cents. In total, if you ride to and from the venue, you will need four .25 cents coins. The buses accept only coins.
If you miss our group or plan to go by yourself, take bus #10 from the convention center, get off at the Estacion Sagrado Corazon, and look for a bus from the Sagrado Corazon University which rides every 15 minutes or so. The bus has the name “Dolphy” on it. It is preferable that you have your IFLA delegate badge with you to show to the driver. Tell him you are going to the conference at the University library.
You might want to consider bringing an umbrella and comfortable shoes.
