RealKM Magazine was very pleased to participate in the
23rd Annual Conference & Exhibition of the Special Libraries Association Arabian Gulf Chapter (SLA/AGC) from 7 to 9 March 2017 in Bahrain.
The conference had the theme of “Quality of Library and Information Training and Educational Programs: The Way Map Toward Accreditation”, which strongly accords with RealKM Magazine’s focus on evidence-based knowledge management and the strategies needed to advance that, for example as discussed in our
educating knowledge managers series.
RealKM Magazine’s involvement in the conference included participating in a panel session on
the expanding role of business information in the knowledge economy.
