About the Conference

Information pervades our lives. Whether executing simple acts or making complex decisions, we depend on information to perform effectively. For better or worse, libraries are part of the fabric of society. They cannot survive and thrive as alien bodies or, to use the language of systems theory, as closed systems with impermeable boundaries”. The mission and vision of academic libraries is to support research, education, and scholarship. Historically, libraries have supported this mission by organizing and providing access to information, special collections, and creating physical spaces for collaboration and scholarship. While the broad mission of academic libraries is largely unchanged, transformations in technology, media, and culture are driving fundamental changes in the production and consumption of information and the practice of scholarship. As a result, academic libraries are rethinking their strategies and services to meet the challenges of the digital world and the demands of the “born digital” generation. Libraries, in particular, are confronting these challenges as the nature of scientific practice is being dramatically transformed by information technologies.
