IFLA’s Bibliography Section and IFLA’s Cataloguing Section are pleased to invite you to the meeting Bibliography in the Digital Age.
IFLA Bibliography Section endorsed in 2009 the publication National Bibliographies in the Digital Age: Guidance and New Directions. (IFLA Series on Bibliographic Control; 39)
The publication was presented as follow: "The changes brought about by the World Wide Web and the explosion of electronic media have called into question many of the assumptions on which national bibliographies have been founded. The need was growing of a route map to navigate through uncharted territories. After a preparation period of several years, IFLA's Bibliography Section endorsed this large set of guidelines. They seek to help national bibliographic agencies improve their bibliographic services."
The satellite meeting should be seen as a continuation of this publication and the purpose is to get status, inspiration and update on how to deal with e-resources in national bibliographies, when the mission is to serve as an important information resource for selection, acquisition, cataloguing and verification in libraries and for the general public as well as a means for scientific research and publication statistics.
Among the speakers are for now: Aniko Dudás (Hungary), Marcin Roszkowski (Poland), Anna Sitarska (Poland), Neil Wilson (United Kingdom), Karin Kleiber (Austria), Hanne Hørl Hansen (Denmark), Tuula Haapamäki and Sinikka Luukkanen (Finland), Pat Riva (Canada) and Anke Meyer (Germany).
Moderator: Carsten H. Andersen (Chair, IFLA Bibliography Section)
The meeting will take place at National Library of Poland in Warsaw on Thursday 9 August 2012.
IFLA Bibliography Section and IFLA Cataloguing Section wish to thank National Library of Poland for a generous offer of hosting this event for free, so there will be no fee for the meeting. Free coffee/tea and lunch will be served.
This event is one of the Satellite Meetings which will be held in conjunction with IFLA’s World Library and Information Congress in Helsinki 11-17th of August 2012.
