UPDATED as of 04 August 2008

We reckoned that a separate compiled posting of scheduled activities during 29th Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) as they are announce by various organizer/association is necessary for the general information of our colleagues as early as now so that they could make the necessary reservation/travel request, etc. It will also serve as a posting supplement to the Librarian Events for September 2008 we have been meticulously compiling.

We will collate all available information that come to our attention and in the absence of official MIBF activity schedule (hopefully will be distributed before the official opening), the listed activities here might be worth our time attending for our professional & personal growth.
