ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Session 2.5 C Juried Paper: Information for inclusion: Assessing sociocultural contextual factors to support Filipino newcomers’ settlement to Canada

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Drawing from dissertation research conducted with Filipino migrants to Winnipeg, Canada, this paper examines newcomer information practices during migration and settlement suggesting that how newcomer communities engage with and become involved with settlement information has direct implications for the methods that information professionals might use to reach them. It considers the complex relationship between the sociocultural contextual factors that inform how Filipino migrants engage in information practices and the strategies that information professionals might use to support this and other migrant populations as they migrate and settle in new and unknown locations.
