Theme: Librarians and information professionals as (pro)motors of change: 
immersing, including and initiating digital transformation for smart societies
This Satellite Meeting, a collaboration between IFLA Standing Committee CPDWL 
(Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning) and the Croatian 
Library Association (Hrvatsko knjižničarsko društvo), presents a forum to 
discuss and share ideas about the impact of the digital world on our current 
and future skill sets.
Digital technologies are transforming every aspect of modern life: they have a 
big influence on how people live, work, communicate and learn. Smart cities, 
smart societies, based on the deep use of Information and Communication 
Technologies (ICT) and digital data, thoughtfully deployed by government, 
public, cultural and heritage institutions, can enhance the well-being of 
Librarians and information professionals have the responsibility to be 
(pro)motors of digital change in their communities and to initiate digital 
transformation for smart societies. By adopting a concerned and critical 
approach to this changing world, library and information professionals can 
demonstrate their commitment to the goal of ensuring “equal and free access to 
information and knowledge” (IFLA Global Vision 2018 highlights). They focus on 
fostering citizens’ informed access to, use and evaluation of information 
demands an effective, focused path for continuous professional development.
Under this umbrella of this topic, the conference includes, but is not limited 
to, the following subthemes:

The importance of building information professionals’ competencies in the 
domains of digital inclusion, critical thinking, argumentative reasoning, data 
literacy, open education resources;
Evidence of information professionals as (pro)motors of digital transformation 
in society, through embedded librarianship, co-creation, e-participation, 
e-democracy, social networks and digital collaboration;
The value of exploring new ways of working and learning through work in 
libraries and heritage institutions: makerspaces, the Internet of Things (IoT), 
smart services, robotics, assistive technologies, chatbots, smart learning and 
BYOD strategies;
The development of new sets of competencies in the fields of big data ethics, 
privacy in the age of big data, data-protection officers, research data and 
open data repositories;
The imperative for collaborative learning to ensure heritage institutions are 
technology-enabled through data-empowered services, data analytics and data 
Coaching and peer mentoring of information professionals in the areas relating
