dc.description.abstractA research survey was conducted to determine the factors that affect the attendance of International Association of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers (IAMSLIC) members at annual conferences. Findings of related studies revealed that participants (librarians and other professionals) attend conferences for career development. Moreover, participation in a conference was affected by several factors including location, affordability, safety, and the demography of the participants. Among IAMSLIC members, networking, affordability and educational opportunities were the dominant factors in attending a conference and location was of least significance. Members of IAMSLIC attended annual conferences for the opportunity for networking with other professionals, updates on current trends and developments in the profession.en_US
