The theme of this year's conference is 'Libraries everywhere'. Libraries are
moving outside the walls of their buildings and the firewalls of their networks
in order to provide information to users wherever they happen to be. They are
applying mobile technology so that users can find information, whether they are
in the street or the classroom or travelling to work or study. Libraries are
participating in social networks in order to be present in the virtual places
that users visit everyday. They are opening up and sharing library data so it
can be discovered via external systems and they are expanding beyond traditional
roles, curating raw research data from the laboratories to ensure that results
are verifiable and data can be re-used. As well, while computing resources shift
to the cloud or connect to grid networks, libraries are moving beyond local
systems and information silos to discover, access and re-use information
resources located anywhere in the world.
The ELAG 2012 conference welcomes proposals for presentations, workshops and
preconference "hands-on" boot camps that address how new technologies are
extending the reach of the library and allowing library services to be provided
everywhere library users are found.
Elag 2012 will be hosted by the Universitat de les Illes Balears (www.uib.es) in
Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
