Uit de oproep:
"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.
