Message From President.
Dear Colleagues in the LIS, Records, Archives and Documentation professions. I am profoundly; exited reaching you through this virtual line which LIAE undertook this as one of its main milestones.
LIAE is cognizant of its limitation but still aspires to reach you all and provide required training to its members. As most of us know, the association had been very active in the mid of 1990’s and later due to the obvious reasons of the border war with Ethiopia; most of its activities were halted. Today, peace has prevailed once again between Eritrea and Ethiopia and it is time for our association to restart the turbine and indulge in the professional development of our members and diligently work in delivering information to the needy.
In the year 2019, LIAE is aspiring to extend it’s out-reach beyond the academic to the public and embrace membership from corporations, institutions, ministries and honorary individuals. Therefore, I call upon all individuals interested in liberating our society through knowledge to join hands with us and take a practical step by signing the membership.
