22nd EBLIDA Annual Council Meeting & EBLIDA-NAPLE Conference
Theme: Libraries in transition. Changes? - Crisis? - Chances!
|13 May - 14 May 2013|
Chair: Klaus-Peter Böttger, President of EBLIDA
The Conference focused on the consequences of the technological, economic and social changes in European society, as well as on the role, the scope and the existence of European libraries in this context. E-books, copyright, economic crisis, immigration, multiculturalism – these are all subjects, among others, that could play a key role in the development of European Libraries. There will also be discussions about the consequences of the economic crisis on libraries (positive or negative), the role of the library in an era of economic crisis and possible solutions libraries can offer to contemporary society. Finally a discussion will take place on defining the current opportunities that arise for libraries dealing with changes and the economic crisis concentrating on subjects such as: library policy, the contribution of libraries to economic recovery and development, fundraising models etc.
The Conference is under the umbrella of EBLIDA, organised by the Association of Greek Librarians and Information Scientists and hosted by the Technological Educational Institute of Athens – Department of Library Science and Information Systems.
