IFLA 2012 Conference Call for Papers: The Surprising World of Government Libraries

The Government Libraries Section, the Government Information and Official Publications Section, the Law Libraries Section and the Library and Research Services for Parliaments Section of IFLA are jointly inviting proposals for papers to be presented at a two-hour programme at the next IFLA General Conference to be held on August 2012 in Helsinki, Finland.

IFLA is the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions.

The theme of the programme will be "The Surprising World of Government Libraries: trends in survival and prospect of new services":
"Government Libraries are facing a transition period. Between some states looking for slash budgets due to the crisis and the ongoing revision of library services because of information technology’s advances, the role of librarians in this scenario must be addressed. This is a Call for Papers to solicit people to share their experiences and case studies that demonstrate how librarians can make a difference and manage complex situations within government structures, including the Executive, the Legislative and the Judiciary branches"
The deadline is February 10, 2012.
