[InetBib] Call for papers IFLA
Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,
hiermit möchte ich Ihnen einen Call for papers für die nächste
IFLA-Konferenz in Göteburg (10.-15.8.2010) zur Kenntnis bringen.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
World Library and Information Congress
76^th IFLA General Conference and Assembly
10-15 August 2010 Gothenburg, Sweden
Theme: Open access to knowledge – promoting sustainable progress
*Call for papers*
The Library Buildings and Equipment Section is holding its Open Session
in Gothenburg, Sweden 2010 on the theme:
*Inspiring interiors – creating and designing practical and exciting
library spaces to promote use*
Library design is not just about the exterior envelope but is also about
exciting, imaginative but always practical interior spaces. The Library
Buildings & Equipment Section is looking for stimulating papers which
provide an overview and or input to the debate about successful library
interior design. Possible topics to address would include the theory of
interior design as related to libraries and issues such as, for example,
colour, materials or lighting and their impact on service and usage.
Issues of accessibility for all and sustainability, in keeping with the
theme of WLIC 2010, should be integral to the paper. It should be
stressed that all papers presented at the session in Gothenburg should
focus on aspects of library buildings and design rather than library
services or functionality. Joint presentations by librarians and
architects/interior designers would be particularly welcomed.
The session will open with a keynote presentation followed by three
shorter presentations on aspects of library interior design.
The following should be provided by 15 January 2010:
- *name and institution* of presenter(s)
- *an abstract of the paper* describing the* *project or research carried
out ( approx 400 words preferably in English)
- *relevant biographical information* of author(s)/presenter(s)
The abstracts will be reviewed and selected by a Review Committee by
mid-February and authors will be notified by 1^st March 2010. The paper
can be given at the congress in any of IFLA’s official languages. If a
paper is selected authors must commit to presenting it in Gothenburg.
All presenters and their papers will be listed in the final IFLA
Programme. Therefore presenters must forward the full text of their
papers no later than 30^th April 2010 to allow time for review and for
preparation of translations. The time allowed for the presentation will
be 20- 25 minutes. Papers should be no longer than 20 pages.
Abstracts should be sent to:
Chair, Library Buildings and Equipment Section
Please note that the expenses of attending the conference in Gothenburg
will be the responsibility of the authors/presenters of accepted papers.
