Call for papers

“Libraries Now! - Inspiring, Surprising, Empowering"”
11-17 August 2012, Helsinki, Finland

IFLA Information Technology Section and Education and Training Section

Theme: Influence of IT development on professional development in libraries.

The recent information technology developments have huge impact on 
library operation
and services. In the past we have dealt with the automation of library 
processes and
integrated library systems. During the last few years, we can observe a 
of all kind of mobile devices which are becoming another important 
gateway to
library services. Open source software tools are also becoming a very 
factor in the operation of libraries. We are wondering whether the 
librarians have
enough knowledge and skills to deal with the information technology based
environments. How do they respond to technology driven users? Do they need
additional professional development? How do they respond to information 
based services demand? How the information technology influences the 
change and culture in developing countries? Can we speak of new library 

The Information Technology and Education and Training sections are 
seeking proposals
for papers on the impact of information technology on professional 
development in

issues related
